A single block of mahogany was used to create the lathe-turned handles, trigger, and carved brace piece. All of the technical processes used to create this project were executed in a manner to enhance, rather than to compromise, the overall design.
Assemble the lid with three 29-inch 2-by-2s for the side and center brace pieces, one 6-foot 2-by-2 for the front brace, and one 6-foot 2-by-4 for the back brace (for extra support).
If you need two ladders, simply remove the bolts from the brace pieces and take off the top piece.
