The sides, top, and trim facing on the front are attached - the wood for which I bought in August last year. (And when you consider how long it's taken me to get this far, an eight-month gap there isn't actually that bad, right? Right??)
It also now has internal shelves, cut from remnants of the same ex-computer desk that gave us the guitar rack of 2010. I made sure they're tall enough to accommodate the one tool that in my 15+ years of keeping aquariums has proved to be endlessly useful and at times indispensable: the 5-gallon plastic bucket.
The next phase involves wood filler that isn't solidified inside the tube (d'oh!) for the nail holes and a few cracky places where the sides and trim didn't match up in the front. After that it's getting trim molding around the edges, doors, stain & sealant, and then feet.
And then: the aquarium itself! :D
But first I have to finish the stand. Anyone want to lay odds on how long it'll take me?
