They do? Works with a pancake compressor (Porter Cable 6 gallon, 2.6 scfm @ 90 psi)? Tell me more.

I was looking on the computer to get some Ideals on stands for aquqriums. somehow I got to this web site and really like the way you built yours Buy the way it is very good not to be a craftsman brfore I have since built one close to your but change the size and trim and framework.

Thumbs up Re: DIY aquarium stand lots of photos - first ever woodworking project

Wow, just wow. This stand is amazing and is built like a tank! I'm also planning to build one. Again, great stand Bustacka! What kind of wood did your husband and you use (for the frame)?

Just a suggestion on the nail hole/filler problem. save some of your sanding waste, mix it with a clear setting glue like Elmers, and counter sink the nails a bit, put the resulting paste in the holes and when dry sand and stain, being the same wood it should take the stain the same way.

Is this an idea, or have you actually tried this?

If you get any Elmer's anywhere on any part of the wood before staining, the stain will not penetrate. A drip, a streak near a join, any speck of glue will seal the wood pores and prevent any stain from working. You can use paints and solid (deck) stains because those are films on the surface of the wood.

If anyone wants to try this idea, test it on a waste piece, or inside the stand out of sight. If you are using a very light stain, or natural wood, it might work. I tend to think not even then, depending on your awareness of finishes. Four or five coats of gloss black, fine steel-wooled between each ought to fix anything you are not pleased with.
