process of my custom built fish tank/bar/entertainment unit

Postby carl1t0z » Tue Nov 29, 2011 3:31 am

is a 60gl tank 4ft x 2ft x 1ft, spent about $300 on materials besides the cost of the tank and about 20 hours of my time
i think i did a pretty good job. i am not a carpenter ( did get some help from my dad) but its a nice hobby. thought i would share some pictures with you. hope you like them
the background is made of styrofoam painted with concrete

that is one classy stand. Reminds me of a club I went to in Florence when I was living there. Well done!

What are you planning on stocking it with ?

If you haven't thoguht about it I would suggest the following:

1x Vodka
3x Red Wine Variations (these are better not kept on there own to keep females happy)
1x Scotch
5x Port (I lose a lot of these so your better keeping a lot so it doesn't look bare)

My thoughts anyway on a good community setup.
