I did this build years ago then after a few years and a family tragedy, left the hobby for 3 years.
Last summer I got back into the hobby full force and even upgraded my system.
Here is my Pictorial story. Doing design, building all the acrylic tanks and sump, woodwork building, staining, sanding then whitewashing, etc. Carvings with my dremel, into the doors, etc.
This was a build that was 2 years in the making.
My hubby did the actual wood building with my designs, so he takes credit for that.
I did the designing painting, staining, carving detailing and white washing on the wood,

I could only post so many pics of this build, so a lot was left out, and a storage, matching 4' viewing bench was added as well.
Tell me what you think of my finished project.
And thanks for reading.
