    black acrylic stand

    I am looking for plans or help on how to build a black acrylic stand. I have seen some that are actually all acrylic and some that are framed with 2 x 4's and paneled with MDF and then acrylic laminate , I really love the look of the high polished black acrylic and would love a stand tank fairly short but tall enough to fit a fluval FX5.

    Does anyone know what one would expect to pay for this type of stand to be made ?

    Does anyone know someone here that has experience in building this type of stand ?


    Look for a stand to fit a 6 foot long tank so about 6 feet and an inch overhang

    You should talk with Cabinetman. He builds all that kind of stuff and does great work.

    I figured if he was interested he would have replied, I may just have to bite the bullet and buy one already made for the big bucks I guess.

    It would be for a 6' x 2' wide stand at around 2' high.
