Show me your steel stand cabinets!

Iíve got an SCA 150 gallon aquarium on the way and having a friend build a steel stand for me. I plan on making wood cabinet fronts, fully removable, attached with magnets. I need inspiration for the build!
Letís see what youíve got!

I did what you're planning, sort of. I used white melamine sheets. My tank is six feet across and two feet front to back. I have two front panels and one each on the sides, all held on by magnets.

Thanks! I like the look of that. Clean and simple.

I'll most likely go with a wood look since that'll match the room decor, but I like the thought of just simple stained panels. Any thought of making the panels hinged? I might do that... find some nice hinges to screw into the steel frame. Hinges with quick releases if I want to completely remove the panel.
