I need to make a cross piece for the back of the unit. This has to be something that I can easily take on and off the ladder parts and move to different locations for craft shows or displays.
I’m using old barn board for the shelves and just lightly sanded them and trimmed all the boards to the same length.
I decided to use another piece of barn board ripped down the middle with a bolt and nut holding the two halves together . That way it can be stored or transported with the two arms stacked one on top of the other and can open up like scissors when needed.
The top of the arms is screwed similarily to the top of the ladders.
The top plank was screwed into the top rungs to make the unit more solid, the others are just sitting on the rungs. It’s easy to take apart and transport. Two ladders, the folded up cross piece and five shelf boards.
Everything is for sale, so if you are interested please contact me!
