Thanks, it's just 2x4 covered with some 5/16 waynes cotting and the molding give it a nice look. Also that stud in the middle is removable so I can take the sump out if I need to. Also I was worried about the weight so I picked up 2 adjustable jack stands from HD ($60 for both) and put them in the basement under the floor joists with two 2x8 headers sandwiched to make a header, I can sleep better now..

Very nice. It looks very well built. I could probably use that thing to hold up my car!
