You lost me at "isosceles trapezium". But nice job attempting to make something yourself that's clearly an overpriced piece of molded plastic. I guess some of us just have that gene.
Questions: What material do you plan on making it with (2x4's, etc), and what tools do you have at your disposal?

I would say, glue some 2x4 to get the necessary height. Rip the glue up to exact height and then do a couple of bevel cuts to make the sides.

I could be missing something but the isosceles sides seem to be just window dressage. My question is, "Are the beveled sides a functional necessity?"
