Completed: Check!
Mortising: Check!
Acts as first posted project: Check!

2×4s and 2×4s rungs half way inset using a router, trimmed down a little because I goofed on the width looking for a tight fit.
Attached to the studs using 6” countersunk lag bolts.

hash tag “OSHA hates this simple trick”.

Hi. Thanks for posting your ladder. I would like to know what requirement your ladder meets. Is is to gain access to a loft? Hugh

That’s the idea. The space in the garage is limited and there was a shelving unit underneath it. Since the ladder wouldn’t go all the way against the wall, I needed something to grab on to. There is a pulley and some rope next to it so I can get bulky item within safe reach from the opening and not attempt to carry stuff up and down the ladder.

Have your say...
