    Building a nice outside around a stand?

    Ok so I've waited long enough with having to look at a metal frame for a stand, and I want to make it look all pretty For those that do not know, I have a 150g. Here is the build thread: http://www.thescmas.com/forums/showt...0-Build-Thread

    And also I've sadly lost about 75 to 80% percent of my livestock and slowly trying to replace them all. So the big question here: How should I attempt this, and how do I attach the wood to the metal frame?


    Thanks,

    Amph

    magnets or liquid nails, if you don't have to take the paneling off.

    So I've done a little research, and have found that glue could work. The other requirement there is that it must be easily taken apart. To quote my dad, "In four years its gone just like you are to collage!" - ah gotta love dads....
