Finally got around to make two Jacobs Ladders for my little brothers. Got the idea of making one from a fellow lumber jock, MasterSergeant. They were very simple to make and I made them with some scrap pine then painted them. Then I weaved ribbon through the blocks and used an air powered staple gun to attach the ribbon. You can find the plans to make one here:

Nice job.

I remember playing with these when I was a kid (a long, long time ago). I think I’m going to make a couple of these sometime.

Way to go, they are fun to make and even more fun watching the faces of those who try it for the first time! Congratulation on a fine project!
