Last Summer, I built this cherry wood wall unit for Dr. Rose. Now it sits in his office and made that room much more comfortable. He wanted a space for books, storage, flat screen, fireplace. And the coolest part was a huge custom made salt water fish tank. As time goes on the beautiful fish and their surrounding environment should evolve into a stunning ecosystem paradise. I hope to come back in the future to take some better photos.
I thought I would throw in some progress pictures for fun. I think the full tank weighed something like 3000 lbs. A rigid frame work had to be built inside the base cabinet to support the weight. The most satisfying part of this project was making a new friend along with his wife, Melissa.
I need a bigger space however. Cari put up with the cabinets sitting in our living room half the summer. Not one complaint. That is one more reason I wash the dishes and vacuum alot.
