The top is 1" thick. I originally used 1/2" plywood but found out it wasn't sturdy enough. I glued and screwed another piece of 1/2" plywood to the original piece face-to-face. It's overkill but I didn't want to scrap what I already had. 3/4" would probably be fine for anything but a stainless steel kit.

There are three sections. Each section consists of two pieces of wood that are connected by a piano hinge. I use a total of four latches to keep the pieces together. Two in the front and two in the back. I use a D-ring clip on each of the latches to keep them from coming loose.
