Hellow fellows! Currently I'm in the middle of an aquarium stand build. The "bones" are made out of pine, for the side pannels, doors, bottom and top I figured I would go with poplar plywood. The tank is rimless glass and I am not sure if only the sides can support its weight. Eitherway the stand has to have a top because it is longer than the tank and I don't like to see it bare. The thing is actualy gonna be a cabinet from what I've described so far. So my issue here, believe it or not I don't have plywood supplier near me and I would like to avoid shipping. So my question is has any of you done a wooden top out of pine or poplar for a 40 gallon(148 liter) aquarium and what are your long term observations of it. My fear is warping. And I am worried of how it would affect the aquarium after it is all set and done. The weight of the aquarium pressing down and the woods natural movement of shrinking and expanding depending on the surrounding moisture. I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
