Back in November I made a ladder for our fireplace and Mom commented on my Facebook post.
So I whipped one up for Mother’s Day. Very similar process and dimensions. I used pieces of old oak flooring and stained it.
My new sliding miter saw has a depth stop, so I used that to the dados and cleaned them up with a chisel. Can you spot the huge mistake though? I marked and cut the dados the same way in both sides of the ladder. Since everything is on a 10° angle, I couldn’t rotate the pieces to work, and ended up with two left sides. Milled up a board for a new right side, which went much quicker.
