Desk Top Tank Build

Hi all, As the title says I am looking into a small desk top tank build and wondered if anyone had done one please?
No I don't mean a plastic tub from wall mart that you empty when not in use but a properly built tank in a smmaller size, say 24 x 16 x 16 for ease and speed in doing smaller parts.
I appreciate I could buy a professionally built model but would prefer a home build.
Anyone with ideas or done such a build please?

    Have you seen the one that @kansashydro uses to show the pattern of the week? I think that's a pretty small one.

    Yes thanks, but as I posted. I am not looking to buy but build.

    Haven't seen one, but doesn't sound too hard. For sure just use an aquarium heater. McMaster-Carr sells polyethylene totes you can slam a divider in. Small pump that you draw out low and return at water level should replace a spraybar.

    Thank you, we dont have that company in the UK but you have given me a start. I would rather use a snib nosed heater element but experimentaion is half the fun of building.
