I decided to use the big 20" board to make the coffin top. No one else will probably notice, but the grain will match all the way across the sides and top.

This is a thing of beauty, I wish I had a fraction of the woodworking ability you appear to have. LoL

Now the math lesson begins. The good part is it was much harder and took me longer to get these angles right in sketchup. All of the angles are actually 10.6 degrees.

Well thanks, but I give most credit to you guys on this forum that provide the endless ideas and the rest to my equipment! I'm sure you could do the same thing with the right tools.

The holes in the tap face board are 7/8" and the perlicks barely fit. I had to "waller" them out just a little. More pocket screws to hold everything in place. I actually had a few problems with the boards splitting on this piece, but I was able to glue the damage and will hide it with some sanding and finishing....

More views of the coffin and I couldn't resist test fitting the perlicks and the tap board handles. (which I would not buy for $40 - again)

Oh that's nice! I wish I had the time to do woodworking like that.
