Thank you dmacc. The sides are 2x6's with 2x4 bracing at the top and bottom. The braces were notched out for added strength and stability. The "shelves" that hold the drums are 2x3's with carpet padding and carpet wrapped around them and a aluminum threshold plate to cover the seams. Two chair brackets were used at each end to attach them to the frame. Everything was screwed-and-glued. All screws holding the frame were counter sunk and puttied/sanded/painted over to hide the screw heads. They are very sturdy and probably overbuilt.
