I made this to hold all of my fish tank supplies. It is mortise and tenon construction, with dovetail drawers. It is made with cherry, maple side panels and Birdseye top and drawer faces, I will be making a shelving unit for my 250 gallon aquarium, using the same materials and design.

That is a beauty. I love the colors.
The stand for my 50 gallon show aquarium stand was cement blocks and 2×6’s :)
You do very nice work! Lucky fish!

Love the wood. Really beautiful. Not sure the fish deserve this. I would put a glass top on the cabinet to protect it from water spillage.

Very pleasing look, excellent work. The contrasting wood tones really set it off.
