I don't recall who posted pictures of something similar a few weeks ago - but thanks for the inspiration! This is my take on it, I layered hem fir and oak for a little color contrast. I used 5" long 1/4" eye bolts to hold the project together as well as anchor the rope handle. I used an orbital sander to smooth out the edges as well as put a slight bevel on the edges. About 5" of flexible electrical conduit wrapped with electrical tape serves as a semi-rigid handle with the rope.

Very nice. I swear after the Holidays I am going to start doing some wood working to get things like this built.

Actually I have a question, what dimension of wood did you use for the top and bottom? Looks like 1X8.

Good eye - 1"x8" for top and bottom, and 1x2 for the risers.

I used flexible electrical conduit, it was about $.78/foot. No particular reason other than I was meandering around the store and saw it and thought it might work

Between the wood and hardware it appears to be sort of heavy, how much does it weigh?

Looks nice gives me more food for thought as I fix my ShopSmith and start making wonderful sawdust....
