I used to make a project every Christmas for my contribution to our family’s secret Santa present. This is a folding step ladder I made for my mother-in-law. It’s suprsingly sturdy. The hardest part about making it is the angles rip-cut in the seat and making sure the piano hinge is installed straight.

Nicely done. Did you build this from plans or is it your own design. I’d like to make one too. Where can I get the plan?

Boy I had to go way back in my files to find any information. Unfortunately all I have is a photocopy of a magazine article. The title is Library Chair and the designer was Nick Engler. It’s on page 42-47 but there’s no mention of magazine title or date.
