    DIY Timber Hood

    I didn't get a hood with my new tank, so I have built one

    Heres the drawing - not sure how well it will show up, pics to follow.

    Its all solid pine, glued and screwed together and will be painted with a few layers of yacht paint

    Diagram looks complicated (even before Claude helped you ) but the end product is nice
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.
