Well, that stand/hood is made of either stained maple or beech. Hard to tell in the pic but probably maple. Very beautiful stand. I assume the whole top removes to access the tank. That tank must be about 6' long and a good 24" tall. I would hate to plant glosso in that Very nice though. I must say, having played pol for years, often in tournament shootouts where the players are very skilled, a pooltable there is a litttle dangerous unless the tank is acrylic. I shudder to think that it only taks one freak mistake to have what, 150+gallons of water all over the place.
