This set of steps is made from recycled Ipil and salvaged Narra. It is 1400 mm high. The extra is for the climber to hold onto. I have found that this extra extension is very important for the persons sense of stability when climbing onto the top step. All joins are dovetails and or locking mortises. There are no screws or nails used. The finish is my own finishing oil and two coats of beeswax. Thank you for taking the time to look.

that has a beautiful simplicity to the lines and curves. I really like the extensions on top, almost like a tree branch extending. Nice job

Hi George, great looking ladder. I like the organic sculpted shape and the long top and handles does look like a great idea.

The shaping and other details in this are amazing. It looks really sturdy and beautiful. How did you cut the sliding dovetails?
