I am finally back in the hobby

After a two year hiatus, I am finally getting back into the hobby. I found this great club right before I transfered jobs and had to get out of the hobby. Well, I am not traveling every week and was finally able to settle down and start a family.

Well, I have started setting up a 55 gallon that was given to me and I am right in the middle of the build right now. I will post the progress as I get there.

Here are a few pics of the new stand I had to build (per the wife's suggestion....). I have to build the doors, but that can wait.

Let me know how you're going to build the doors. I work at a custom mill and may be able to get you some pretty cool stuff for free from our cull pile. Also, if you need any crown for the canopy i can probably hook you up. Just trying to keep the stuff from the landfill. Looking good so far!

Thanks. I have some scrap red oak boards that I will be using for the outside of the doors, but I haven't decided on what the inlay of the doors will be yet. Right now, I will be going hoodless. I just bought a Current USA Nova Pro to sit on top with the stand off legs. I will try to post more pics tonight on the additional progress.

Thanks everyone, it is great being back. I will probably post a progression/build thread to show the progress of the build.

Thanks, but I moved from Dallas about 2 years ago when I transfered. I am not too far though, I now live in Kennesaw. I have submitted to the mods to change it, so hopefully it will change soon. Thanks for the offer, I might pick your brain.

Dude, don't tell me that. I think the wife will demand it since our daughter loves climbing in things, such as cabinets. I have already caught her trying to climb into the tank when it was on the floor.
