Hope this is the correct forum for a question. I have a somewhat weird project I'm working on for a friend. He has me building a toe-pincher coffin, which is fairly simple in itself. My big problem is the way he wants to lid to come out. Here is a picture.

I know dimensions are tiny. I'm also attaching the SketchUp file for a better view.

I am having a hard time getting the angles for the side pieces to match up correctly. any help on how to calculate that are an easier way to go about it is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'm a hobbyist with a few years experience. Mostly I've done bookshelves and entertainment centers. Couple of chairs. I know a bit about calculating angles from computer work its just the mix of an angles crosscut as well as an angle on the joint that is messing me up. The angled rise on the edge is throwing me way off somewhere.

Here are a couple closer pics of the dimensions and an unzipped sketchup file. No idea why the zip wouldnt work.

thanks for the quick answers guys. If someone could point me at someplace to learn the math for that that'd be awesome. And this is my first project with sketchup so I'm still getting used to all the features.
