I found the plans for this quilt ladder in Wood magazine a while back. I decided to make it for my mom who does a lot of quilting these days. Overall the construction is not very difficult, although with three kids it took me longer to complete than I am willing to say. I did modify the plans a bit. Instead of using connector bolts from the outside into the rungs, I used dowels to hide the joinery. I finished it off with a few coats of Waterlox. I really love that stuff. It gave the maple just the right amount of gloss and warmth. In the end my mother loves it and I am happy to be able to move on to other projects. Thanks for looking.
