This specially built cabinet serves as a base for an aquarium. But instead of fish the residents are turtles. Aside from needing to look good the aquarium cabinet has to conceal all the pumps and other equipment to regulate the environment inside the tank. As with many other aquarium owners, this tank was custom made for them. Each cubic foot of water contained in it weighs 62 pounds and my job was to make sure the cabinet was build more than strong enough to handle that much weight. The walnut exterior surrounds an inner frame of plywood and 2X SYP lumber.
