    a few snags were hit along the way..

    when the tank arrived we found that the stand would not fit through a doorway.

    the following day i took the stand to my uncles woodshop and the two of us shortened the stand to allow it to fit through doors.

    after much cutting, drilling, thinking and all. we finished.
    sanded the whole unit down and started treating the wood with sanding sealer, this makes the wood way more water resistant! if not water proof!

    this evening my uncle took the stand to another one of his work shops to give it a real spray gun paint job!

    colour of choice... matt black..

    have yet to see the cabinet itself, but from what i have heard its turned out brilliantly!
