Introduction: Pallet Wood Fish Tank Stand

About: i am an artist and musician. i make things of use out of things that no longer have use. i think the hip term is "upcycling." i post a lot of inspirational and entertainment videos on youtube.com/timsway. oc...

my 4-year-old son got fish for his birthday. i had to rush and build a stand for it before the fish outgrew their salad bowl. they survived and are thriving with their new friends. the cabinet is made entirely from pallet wood (save a couple pieces of old 2x4). cheers! -tim

    thanks divine dragon! a little cabinet like this would make a great tv stand and could easily have an adjustable shelf in there (we left it open for some tall books).

    my tv stand is also made of pallets, btw. see attached pic ;-)

    Do you have instructions on this stand?

    not really, outside of the video showing the steps. i didn't write up any plans. it's a pretty basic box/cabinet construction. feel free to email me with any questions you may have. i'll do my best to help. -t

    We just got a 16 gallon fishtank for Christmas and cannot find a sturdy rustic stand. I have been looking for 6 weeks! I just saw your video and I love this! If I had the know-how and something more than a small table saw I'd so make this!

    thanks man!

    the tools come in time. took me a long time to get them all and i'm still wanting for more (it's a disease, really;).

    but all you really need is the desire. that's way more important than tools and so-called talent (i don't believe it it, really, i believe in practice and dedication).

    i have a six-part series on instructables that shows how to get started reclaiming your own wood and making stuff with it with only simple, used hand tools. check it out. i hope it inspires you!

    thanks again,
    tim
