Well I figured i may as well go ahead and start my build thread I am building a rimless 60 gal cube (2x2x2) with a 3x3x3 red oak stand. I had to tear apart the tank when i bought it so as of now it is 4 panes of glass and i am waiting to get the bottop pane from the glass shop. My plan for the stand is 3x3x3 so that i can have a 6" lip all the way around the tank and in the rear have the plumbing lines go thru the top of the stand rather than having a bunch of pipes hanging behind the tank/stand. Also this will allow more than enough room for a 30x24 or 30x30 custom rimless sump. And as of now i am thinking about stealing some of adamT's sump design and building a compartment in the sump sor an ATO resevoir, but i havn't gotten that far yet. What i have done is build the frame for the tank. And i will work on skinning it sometime this week or next weekend, depending on when i have time. So without further adeu, here is the stand build.... I used my CAD program to design my stand and get the exact measurements for each board so i didnt have to do any math or figuring when i got to work cutting, and I'm glad i did because out of 5 2x4x12 boards this is what i had left over. and here is the plan that i am going off of I still have a few odds and ends to tie up b4 i can begin skinning it. I want to add a couple more 2x4 on the bottom to support the floor which will b recessed about 2" below the bottom lip of the stand then epoxied to give me a few extra mins in the case of an overflow... but i'm in no rush and will b taking my time to make this setup all that i want it to b.
