    Decided to start a new reef project for spring/summer 2015.

    Very very excited as always. Never really had anything running long term or short term for that matter. :m12: Guess i just enjoy design and building reef tanks. :thumbup:

    Started this weekend at building the stand. Absolutely happy with the outcome. Here goes, hope you enjoy!

    Stand size : 600mm x 600mm x 900mm

    Wood sizes:

    600mm x 55mm x 35mm (x4)
    530mm x 55mm x 35mm (x4)
    790mm x 55mm x 35mm (x8)
    900mm x 55mm x 35mm (x4)
    900mm x 35mm x 35mm (x4)

    For the top and bottom parts i used the 600mm x 55mm x35mm & 530mm x 55mm x35mm.

    [​IMG]

    Put the 900mm x 35mm x 35mm (x4) on the inside of the top and bottom parts.

    Put the 790mm x 55mm x 35mm (x8) on the corners to strengthen and complete the frame. 2x lenghts per corner.

    That's all i have for now. Next up. Filling the holes and sanding the frame to get it ready for primer, paint & sealer.
