Aquarium Co Op product request: good aquarium stands


Recommended Posts

But you really don't want solid wood which can warp over the years creating an uneven surface. I have an Ethan Allen dining room set, it took 30 years but the solid wood did split one day. The first attempt for my stand used 2x4", the top was perfectly level when assembled. One week later, the wood had warped and was unusable. 

The prefered wood material is 3/4" plywood which is dimensionally stable even when wet. For a nice appearance, use veneer plywood. I built my stand out of 3/4" maple plywood, I think it came out nice. I used maple as it was cheaper than oak at the time and the grain matched the doors which I already had. Veneer also uses resources (hard wood) wisely.
