Ladders – To Climb or not to Climb

I have been wanting to build a ladder for quite some time now.  I haven’t been lucky enough to find an old used one at garage/auction sales…so it was time to finally build my own.  I bought all the supplies at our local building supply store.  I used 1″ dowels and one pine board for the sides which I cut down to the correct size.  I did have help with some of the cutting. :)
We drilled the holes all the way through and  used nails to keep the dowels in place.  After some sanding, priming, more sanding, painting and finally some lacquer the ladder was finished.  It just took a couple hours to complete!  I’m thinking I should make a few more of these for gifts or try to sell them.
Here is the finished ladder in all its glory!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

I agreed to take on the challenge. :)

Today I want to show you a few custom orders of late.

This large print was brought to me with the request to build a new wooden frame for it. This amazing print measured 24" x 37" which made this the largest wooden frame I've made to date. It's amazing how the print pops which a wide wooden frame around it.
