The 60 Gallon Cube Aquarium Stand is a premium aquarium stand that is designed to hold up to a 60-gallon tank. The stand features a beautiful black finish and a curved design that works well with the overall shape of most aquariums. The stand has two adjustable shelves for holding decorations, rocks, or other objects you may want to keep out of the water.
Designing a stand for your aquarium is of utmost importance. When you’re planning the stand, consider all of the factors that might affect it, namely:
- The aquarium’s dimensions
- The aquarium’s weight
- The aquarium’s location (i.e., where will you place it in your home)
- The aquarium’s decor (i.e., what materials will it be made of and what will its color scheme be)
- Start with a solid, level foundation. The stand needs to be strong enough to support the weight of the aquarium and the water that will fill it. A sturdy base is paramount for building an aquarium stand that will last for years.
- Make sure the base is square! It may be tempting to skip this step, but the whole design of the aquarium stand depends on its being square. If it isn’t, you could end up with a structure that leans or is unstable and unsafe.
- Use wood glue between each board as you stack them together. Clamping them tightly, one on top of the other, helps all of them line up together neatly and creates a stronger bond than nailing or screwing alone would do.
In the beginning of this tutorial, I mentioned that you could paint or stain your finished stand. Now that your stand is built, you can choose to do either. If you want to paint it, simply purchase a can of spray paint, and follow the instructions on the can. (Note: This will likely require multiple coats of paint.) If you are staining it instead, then please read on further!
Staining the stand will give it a nice finish, and still allow the natural beauty of the wood to show through. First thing’s first – choose a stain color! Stain comes in many different colors from natural wood tones to deep cherry reds and dark ebony stains. Go with whatever looks best for your room in my opinion.
Next up – apply one coat of stain evenly over all parts using a decent sized brush or rag. Make sure all parts have received an even coat before letting it dry completely which takes about 6 hours for water based stains and 24 hours for oil based stains. A second coat may be applied if desired but this is not necessary unless you really want a deeper color.

This particular project is one that can save you a lot of money. A fixture like this could easily cost $200 or more in the store. The materials cost me about $70, so I saved about $130 by doing it myself.
Not only did I get to save some money and keep it out of the store’s cash register, but I also got a sense of accomplishment from building something myself and being able to say “I made this” when people complimented my aquarium stand.
