My mother-in-law has expressed interest in a ladder shelf, but couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for in stores. Specifically, she wants a ladder entertainment center, with a TV shelf in middle and ladder shelves at either end. This blog will attempt to chronicle my journey as I make this piece of furniture. There were a couple of considerations when designing this unit. First, it needed to be relatively light weight, so I am building it out of pine acquired from a local saw ...
