Here is the frame. I put a brace on the back that isn't in this picture.



Here is a top view with the box, the top trim, the top door. I have yet to install hinges but yes that is a door.



Here is simply the front of the canopy with the trim and doors.



Last and final picture of the canopy build.

Doors, and all.



Overall I am really liking the idea of canopies now. This is one very light. With the doors max weight of 10lb. I have just a bit of sanding to do. I will stain the canopy using the same method as the stand.


The day after that poly for everything. Inside and outside of the canopy, only the outside of the stand.

I still have to reseal the 65g. I still plan on doing the DIY background aswell.

Thanks for looking. PLEASE let me know what you think.

Thats exactly right. I started the panels and figured it out a couple cuts into the project. I figured it would be fine and I wouldn't notice it.

Once I was done, I just didn't like it. I didn't understand why I would run this grain left to right when everything else has been running up and down... well not ALL but I did try for the majority. So I changed it :D I am sure most people wouldn't even notice. Its all good.

All the panels are dry. Front is cut to size, sides are cut. 2 back supports are cut. Everything has the groove to accept the trim or the door on top.

I did the doors today. Can you spot whats wrong with the door on the right side?



I realized real early but thought it wouldn't bother me later. Well it did and I did did both :D

I will say what it was later.

Here is a picture of the front with the updated doors on front.

Henry,
No its not done yet. I feel I am a day behind schedule. That day was yesterday and I had restricted tool access. Whatever I have to do to keep the customer happy ;) As of now, I am just a bit disappointed in myself.

Steve,
Start with 10, end with 10. Lumber is just lumber, you can't find fingers but I have yet to look on ebay.

I just got in, Uploading picture now.
