Building sturdy stand

I've a 120 G acrylic tank (60" by 18" footprint) for which I need to build a new and sturdy stand. Looking for ideas or for hobbyists who have done this before. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Ive built four stands now and This is the exact thread I went off of to build my stands. I just followed the picture in the third post. It is unbelievably sturdy. Just use good straight 2x4's. I used Fir from home depot (took a long time to sort through and get the straight ones) then used nice 1/2" oak plywood for the outside. Cost me about $250 for everything including the canopy as opposed to over $1000 for a custom stand
