    Very large Aquarium stand finished

    I have built a lot of aquarium stands but this one is the biggest one 480 gallons. As I said in my other posts the cabinet frame is maple with walnut door frames and maple center panels, The finish is satin clear.

    Wow! That is incredible. Looks great, but I imagine there's some pretty serious structural engineering hidden behind that beautiful cabinetry.

    Thats like what, about 4,000# of water alone. wow.

    Wow! Very beautiful and, I'm sure, a challenging project. Congrats. I do hope you get paid appropriately.

    Great job as aways Joe. I have to agree with Brent, would like to see some of the structure behind it too.
