Need to build a canopy. DIY plans anyone?


New member
I need to build a canopy for my 210 gal and was wondering if anyone could post up some diy plans since I am not that good at woodworking. I am using led lights and would like to mount them inside the canopy and probably have an open back design. I would like to have the front lift up for access (not the top).

Any help would be appreciated.


I'm doing a full thread on plywood stands and canopies. The build starts tonight, pics up by tomorrow.


I don't have any pictures, but I made mine a while ago out of oak veneer plywood and stained it to match the stand. I was also able to find doors at HD that matched exactly. For the back I just ran a board up about 6" to keep the fish in and to stabilize the canopy. The top is totally open.
