Default Building a wider stand than aquarium width question

Hello everyone, I decided that I will use ever popular REs stand template for my stand. I do have a question in regards to width of stand vs tank width. My tank is 18" wide, however sump that I am looking into is 23" wide. This leaves me with predicament. I cant just build wider stand at 24", as then supports will not be sitting underneath the tank, no bueno. What would be easiest way to extend width of stand, so that I could have solid base for aquarium as REs template, but also enough room to fit wider sump underneath?

Thanks for the help

24 inch wide stand no problemo.
Just use 3/4 - 1 inch ply on top, and a couple of perpendicular cross braces.

I agree with WarDog. Just add a couple of cross braces under where the edge of the tank will be.

I'm obviously not aware if its even an option but a remote sump would be how I'd want to do it.
