« Part 5: Sunday, a quick shop visit Part 6 of Ladder for Towels? series no next part

Cleaned things up a bit….cut a few wedges of Rosewood…

Plan being….Work my way along one side of this ladder….adding one tread at a time….glued and wedged..

Some taking more than one wedge…

Some getting a second wedge….I was going to then work along the other side…

Since this side was done…had to wait a bit…had a repair going on…

So…once this was done….I could then glue up the second side….after I had run the router along the inside edges….since it was a bit hard to do, with that clamp in the way…

Let this sit a day….

Next day…remove the clamps…..slowly….nothing flew apart? Usually a good sign….router to refresh a few rounded edges…beltsander, palm sander, spokeshave,,, and the Millers Falls No. 9…..all took turns, getting smoothed out…one side done? Add a coat of stain…..wipe down while flipping the ladder over,,,,and work down the other side…then stain that….and any spots I had missed…

I guess this is called a PIP?
Details of the wedged tenons, and the top of the ladder..

And, how the treads look…

Letting things dry a day…and see about a coat of clear gloss poly…

Just a small, light-weight 4’ ladder….to hold either towels, or small, fancy blankets…..

Will either lean up against a wall, or she will hang this on a wall…up to her.

Thanks for looking in….
