This is day one..basically just a box...lol this is a close up on the type of stain that i chose..its ebony..and on the Oak it looks amazing!!! The out side of the tank is Stained Ebony..but i didnt want to stain the inside for obvious reasons..so i instead used a Flat black latex paint. so i found out that wood likes to bow...doh!! so i built a frame and screwed it on..took the bow right out and added some needed stability. and this is where i'm at now...everything is stained and or painted...i have to drill for the vents and wires...attach the light fixtures...screw on the piano hinges for the top door...and then build my sliding glass door...i cant for the life of me find tracks for the glass locally so im gonna have to order them..and then order my glass. Im going to have them pre instal a handle all in all i think this is going great!!..ive learned alot!! and made some mistakes.i asked alot of questions and you guys have helped alot!!..hopefully by next weekend i will have a fully up n running tank...and then in another 70ish days my new friend will hatch and everything will be AWESOME!!!
