Hi all, I am after someone who can build me a specific size fish tank cabinet. I want to be able to paint it so I have been told to use a high density particle board. Would this be correct? The tank size is 910mm long x 500mm wide x 500mm high. I would want the cabinet to be 800mm high Please PM if you can help Cheers
Hey all Just doing up a design for the 4ft, 2 tier timber stand/cabinet i want to make. Have a look a pic and tell me what you think, not sure if i need another support on the front, in the middle. Stand is just on 5ft long & 4ft high & just over 1ft deep. Made it longer so i could put canisters in there as well. Will skin it with 3mm ply Will use 75x40 pine for the frame. Cheers Dan
Hi there all I thought I might share the project I have been working on since the weekend. Decided to put plans for a 3ft tank on hold and settled with a 2.5ft tank (30 x 15 x 15). Also wanted to have a go at building a custom stand as I wanted one with decent height. Here's the tank and equipment. I will be using a 2ft Hagen T5 unit that's currently on another tank. So it was off to Bunnings last Saturday to grab the pine and have them cut, then managed to get the stand completed just after dinner. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics while building the stand but here it is after the second coat of primer/sealer. It measures 34"h x 31"w x 16"d and will be covered with 12mm MDF. Had the MDF sheets cut up on Monday and picked up that afternoon. First coat of primer on the sheets that didnt need to holes cut out of them, such as the sides and back. This morning. Holes drilled/cut for piping/cords for the side and back panels. First coat of primer on the new panels, second coat for the old sheets and first coat of paint for the stand. Ended up using an old tin of "Charcoal Grey" that I had left over from my first stand to cabinet build. Just earlier tonight, managed to get second coat for the other bits of MDF and also second and final coat for the stand. That's it photo wise. I'll get the first coat of paint on all the MDF sheets tomorrow night, then the final coat on Friday night. Will be using "Satin Black" for the MDF sheets. Hopefully by Saturday it will be ready to be put together into a sleek (well that's the plan :sweatdrop: ) cabinet. The only thing left to do is to figure out whether I will build a light fixture as well, or leave the light just on the tank. Fingers crossed by Sunday the tank will be on the stand with water! Thanks all for looking, will continue to update in the next few days. Cheers Sponge
