Hello all,

As some of you may know I am a professional cabinet and furniture maker/designer. I was trained in the art, through an apprenticship, in th euse and skills associated with fine furniture, hand tools and all manner of related areas. I am not always much help with your fish or plant problems, but this stuff I do know and will be happy to share my knowledge and experiences with anyone. No question is to basic and will never be considered silly.

Currently I work for a company called VCA, a high end furniture and cabinet shop that has done work for people like Bill Gates's private residence and the GAP headquarters in NYC. Below is a pic of one of my own personal designs and projects.

I HATE the common pine rectangle stand with the double doors. Of course, that is what I have.

I have always dreamed of making a finer piece of furniture that would perhaps have shelfs for books and not be as boxy. However, I could never figure out how to distribute the load of the aquarium without the evenly distributed 2x4s.

Any thoughts Dennis?

    drill press
    circular saw
    assorted hammers and screw drivers
    assorted clamps
