Here are the different terms of wall members. You have two Jack Studs on the end there. Jacks are the members in wall frame that hold up the header over an opening. Occasionally they are doubled up for added strength, which is what we chose to do. A King Stud is a stud that is running fully from top plate to bottom plate and it is what the jack studs and header are fastened too. The Bottom Plate (BP) or Sole Plate is what makes up the bottom horizontal wall section. It is almost always made with pressure treated lumber because it is crucial that it doesn't ever break down or rot away.
In this photo a classmate, Garrett, and I are assembling the header for the opening for an overhead door going onto the front of the building. You can see in the left corner of the photo we have clamps on the two wood pieces holding it flat to reduce the cupping in the wood before we screwed it together.
