Help On Building A Sump!

I have a 60 gallon aquarium and just yesterday i bought a 100 gallon corner aquarium which is going to be reef setup, i need to build a sump, i bought the overflow part and i do know that i need a pump which has to do 1000 gph.

Im stuck on the part about building i sump. Im going to buy a 20 gallon tank to use as a sump, but i dont know where to divide it and what i actually need. If anyone know how to make a sump please help me out.
