Michael Khor’s TV Tank from Aqua Hobby“Ever wondered what to do with that ancient 26″ wooden TV set laying around in yours or your grandparent’s garage? Here’s a perfect destination for it! Even if you don’t have the old TV, it shouldn’t be too hard to buy one for almost nothing, and in no time you can have your favorite program broadcasting all day long, with no commercials!” [via] – Link.

  1. I was wondering if it is possible to make a new fish tank using the front of the CRT screen – and thus save the “bubble” look of old tv screens.
    I am currently beginning my own project and managed to roughly separate the screen from the rest of the CRT and clean it up a bit. My main problem is that i don’t know how to attach glass for a tank to the rounded corners of this piece.
    I hope that this has been achieved before…

  2. hey mate,

    cheers,

    chris
