Chuck's Uber Secret Christmas Project
Hey all. Thought I would post up a build thread for my secret Christmas project for the girlfriend. She has my old nanocube set up as a planted tank on an old tv stand. She may be moving to a new house soon and showed an interest in finding something nicer for the tank to sit on since it wont be in her bedroom at the new place, So I got the idea in my head to build her a nice little stand for the tank. I ended up being able to get a pile of reclaimed barn wood from a co-worker for free so the project begins soon. It was a little wet today when I got it so it is all piled up in my spare room drying out. I'm basically going for a modern looking stand using the aged patina of the barn wood. Below is the design I have drawn up for the stand. Ignore the 2 different colors, Solidworks was screwing up on materials and I'm too lazy to fix.
When things get rolling on it I will get some progression shots as it starts to come together.
