I have to make a 120cm wide stand and thought I'd have to go the wooden frame route. I really like the ADA style stands though but I'm unsure wether this design would be strong enough for 120x45x45 tank. What does everyone think?
You can use the Blum kitchen style hinges and they work fine and can be made perfectly flush, I did it if you search back some pages. I also used 18mm mdf for my stand which was for an 80 x 40 tank and also has a central braceI think the problem would be attaching the doors with kitchen hinges to the wooden frame so that the edges of the doors are still flush with the sides of the stand. I guess I could do the design in this thread and up the thickness to 25mm.
Yeah I saw those. I'll definitely be using some. I've read the whole thread about 3 times now! Anyway I'll be doing the same design with 18mm Mdf but I'm going to double up on the sides and centre support just to help with the longer span.You can use the Blum kitchen style hinges and they work fine and can be made perfectly flush, I did it if you search back some pages.
