Hi guys and gals, my names Zach and I am 21. Love building things and was a carpenter with my dad for 5 years which is where I got my start. I have a hobby of taking care of planted aquariums and just like everything with a brand, the better the more expensive. Anyways, I have been trying to build aquarium stands to match those sold for a very high price. So many, that I have made close to 12 and been satisfied with 0 of them.. I came here looking for some help as several hours of searching left me with nothing.. The stands are very easy to make as I've made several using birch, mdf, Formica, paint and so on. Here's my issue, the design of the name brand stands have no seams, wood grain or anything else. They almost seem to be wrapped in a colored film. It is impossible to find out information about there finish or construction. Formica leaves edges, and I can't get rid of edges with the paint - may just be my fault. Please any advice would be great. I will attach pictures of what I want to replicate.
