Where to find stand and hood plans?

Recommended Posts

I have finally conned my boyfriend into making me a stand and hood for a 5ft x 2ft x2ft tank and was looking for any build plans i could give him. I have done an internet search but have not found much so far.

Could anyone point me in the direction of some plans, we have looked at stands in the stores for ideas as well.

Thanks heaps

Edit to add the stand will be made from wood not steel.

I could prob design something and give you a cutting list of materials needed as well. A bit better than the above post. It really depends what tools you have access to. The more complicated the design a larger range of tools will be required. At minimun i could say a compound saw, decent drill, possibly a router, a good carpenters square, a good tape measure and lots of patience. Let me know what you are looking for in a stand and ill see what i can come up with. Check out my threads for my xurrent build.

Thanks Brockssracer, the boyfriend is a carpenter is has all the tools to make it, and due to this i would like a nice cabinet not just a stand lol.

DFF thanks for the links, when i googled i only got a few and lots you had to pay for the plan.
