Skimmer base

Out of what can I make a base to raise my skimmer a few inches from the bottom of my sump? My husband suggested he can make one made out of crate material but I wasn't sure if the plastic can release anything bad that can b bad for reef/ fish

What are your thoughts?

Light stand: 72 inch Current USA 12x39W Lights: Current T5HO (2)-10kk True lumen T5HO (6)-12kk. Power white Current T5HO (4)-460nm Actinics 220 gallons custom tank
