No real story, just made some steps from some scrape maple that I had so she can get on the bed. Charley Sue sure seems to like them. I did use a tent on it, which was a neat experience, with poly on top. My wife now uses them to clean the mirrows in the bath room, as she is vertically challenged, and we have 9’ ceilings. Thanks for looking

Hoss, it seems your dog and your wife are happy with the steps…my wife has the same problem.

Well done the tint matches the bed color wonderfully. And, the beagle is beautiful . One of my favorite of the canine breeds.

You know, I’ve had steps for my last two dogs, and neither one of them seemed to ever want to use them. On the other hand, it took my current Shitzu about three weeks before he would try the steps down into the lower level of the house, and still will hesitate to this day before starting down.

I guess you have to have the right dog.
BTW, Charlie is a good looking dog!

Good idea to help out Mans best friend. Great job on the tint. I remember doing this for a friend to get his dog in a van.

Cool steps! I need to make something like this for Quigley (basset). His legs are way too short to make the jump onto the bed.

Nice one. We have to take care of the needs of our 4-legged kiddos too.

One small step for a man and one giant step for a canine friend.
