I being new to building a stand like this I made alot of beginner mistakes by being inpatient, trying to cut cost and not having the knowledge of what I needed where to get it or how to make it work, but after taking time away from the project and research and thought I'm back and have a game plan, I have to use European Blum hinges instead of the regular kind and I'll be putting the doors on first the the other panels.
Drill • Table Saw • Jig saw • Ect
After putting the unskin on
this is what I wanted to go with but had to revamp and start over
this is the aquarium that will go atop the stand after everything is done.
