I've been trying to decide whether to scratch build an enclosure from mdf or plywood. Thought of stacking tanks on their sides and building doors for the front of them.
Then I was visiting my parents tonight and they said they want this out of their house


I'm not sure what wood they are made of but I know they are solid wood, not mdf or plywood. They are wicked old (at least early seventies, wicked solid, and wicked heavy. three separate units, 76 high, 30 wide, and 15 deep. Not to happy about the depth being only 15 inches , but hey what are you gonna do.
So, I got this idea to remove the shelves, put the units on their sides, and stack them up, then make front sliding doors for them.
Something like this

what do you guys think?
