i'll remove those bar code stickers when and if i get to it. right now i need to hurry up and set it up with the tank. i will post more photos of the tank set up.
here are a few more pictures with details of the build.
the western red cedar is very soft wood, but i pre-drilled holes so that screws would drive in straight.
detail of inside joint. as you can see, this construction is quite sturdy.
