This will be the angels new home, all plywood except the 3 panes of glass of course, still need to build a small stand and top for it. I am going to remove the gas insert in the fireplace and put it there under the mantle.

I tried doing a write up a few times and I agree when the creative juices start flowing, I put the camera down.

3 panes of glass?? What am I missing here? I would think this design would take 5 panes.

Well normally it would only be 4 panes since the back would be one piece. In this setup though he made a plywood backed tank.

Pretty much the inside is coated with epoxy resin or fiberglass. It makes it waterproof and very strong. If you look around the internet you can find tons of MDF/Plywood tanks. Very cool stuff. You can make HUGE tanks this way and only technically have to pay for one pane of glass and sides and back being wood.
