nice DIY

Low cost

Good :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hi there....

The cost is not low compare with ordered.

The difference is we can enjoy the process and choose the material.

Of course not to mention the satisfaction once completed.

Hi James.

The cost will diff much as based on the material chosen...

For the cabinet, I spend about SGD300 plus for the material itself.

The project stopped now at the completed cabinet will pending for the custom tank order approval release from my FTO.

I have not taken any picture on the cabinet with all the side laminated with formica...

Probably the next updates which I have would be in Jan 2014.

This delay also due to my newly task and commitment to my families...

Apologize for the delay.

In fact I'm also DIY the lighting using LEDs aside from the cabinet.

My main obstacles are relocating the current tank to new position as the existing position will be use for the new tank and also my piping and trunking for the compressor to my sump tank..

Material are mostly available but just to have the time for that major drilling and laying out the wiring plus the piping...

All the above can only start after i have relocate my current tank.

Probably i'll schedule to relocate my current tank in mid Dec.
