I helped build this for a cousin, as a gift for his bride to be. He wanted to give her a hand crafted gift but lacked the skills to make it for her so I assisted him in its creation. He stumbled a few times and I let him make the mistakes so I could show him how to overcome unwanted outcomes. He gained useful skills with several shop tools and ended up with a very happy and surprised fiancé. The project turned out great and it was a lot of fun being able to teach him. We used Cherry and the joinery is doweled. The rungs are removable via threaded insert and connector bolts for easy storage. We built it off of a plan he picked up at Woodcraft.
