  • The Facade is Up!!!

    Hello all,

    I just wanted show off my new facade for my tank. My tank construction is finally complete!!!

    Before the facade:



    After the facade:



    Facade Canopy opened:



    Facade Drawers opened:



    I had them also replace the door to my home theater cabinet on the left too to match the facade. I think he did an excellent job in construction and matching the stain color to our hardwood floors.

    If anyone needs a custom cabinet maker in Los Angeles or the OC, I highly recommend Anthony from AMC Cabinetry 714.383.2027. Anthony does great work and pays a lot of attention to detail.

          Sweet tank!!! Will you be able to get to that tunze magnet if it falls while cleaning, or did you mount it with silicone?

              I would maybe look into door weather stripping so you can not see the light running through the doors... If not that maybe something else to block the light around the doors. That would even set it off further.

                Jeff: Yeah, I was wondering if I could live with the light shining through, but he's going to make backstops that will block the light behind the canopy doors.

                Thanks. Well, I keep the sides of my tank O'Naturale and don't clean them. The drawers come off their guides pretty easily if I have to get back there.

                Not much to see. It's pretty much a 1x4 running the length of my tank. I live in an older house and the walls are plaster, not drywall. It makes hanging things alot more difficult, and messier.

                Thanks for all the compliments!
