You have a right triangle on the lower left corner and a trapezoid if you look at it in an angle… well, the OBVIOUS thing is that you got rectangles.

Looks more like a physics problem to me (especially if the wooden pieces are just placed, and not attached to anything).

What is the minimum coefficient of friction between the floor and the slanted piece of wood that would allow this construction not to fall? … or something like that.
