Sounds like you have it under control. Oh, to have had the forethought to use 5 gallon buckets as overflows. I don't have room under my stands (they are all double-deckers except one) so I have mostly little, flat plastic storage containers crammed under the bottom tanks that I regularly forget to dump. That is a recipe for horrifying floor damage. You are already on a better track.

The other thing that might help save some money (which you probably already know if you are a woodworker) is that that veneer worked great for me with pocket screws. My one quality stand is made of oak, but my friend did a fantastic job with pockets screws in oak veneer plywood and I bet it knocked 50% off the cost of the wood for the project.

Keep up the good work! You demonstrate a lot of wisdom and understanding in dealing with your wife and her opinions on the project, BTW.
