After performing the 1st version (my version) of Jacobs ladders, and test it, I made some modifications that will improve performance and lengthen its life:
- added a chamfer on the edges and the movement is much more fluid (also work a curve)
- I changed the grain orientation in the “logical” sense (originally guided me for aesthetic and manufacturing, but technically this new option is better)
The measurements of the small panels are: 3-1/4’’ x 2’’ x 3/8’‘
The last two pictures show a man greeting them and a cat stretching after a long nap (at least that’s what I see). Make yours and have fun!

Después de realizar la 1ra versión (mi versión) de las escaleras de Jacobs, y de ponerla a prueba, hice algunas modificaciones que mejorarán su rendimiento y alargarán su vida útil:
- agregué un chanfle en las aristas y el movimiento es mucho más fluido (también sirve una curva)
- cambié la orientación de las vetas en el sentido “lógico” (originalmente me guié por una cuestión estética y de manufactura, pero técnicamente esta nueva opción es mejor)
Las medidas de las tablitas son: 8cm x 5cm x 9mm
Las últimas dos imágenes muestran a un hombre saludándolos y a un gato estirándose después de una larga siesta (por lo menos eso es lo que yo veo). ¡Hagan las suyas y diviértanse!

Nice work. Looks like another good bucket list project ;-)

I love it – Christmas is coming, and wood scraps are all over the place in my shop, just begging for this to happen to them. Fave for sure.
