    Quilt ladder

    I asked youngest son to keep eye out for an old ladder to hang my quilts on. Guess what I got for Christmas? A Little more than an old ladder, DS made this with storage...

    That is totally awesome. I love items made from woodworkers. He did a phenomenal job on that ladder. I know you are proud of him & his work.

    That sure is pretty. I love all the attention to detail, like the fancy scroll work he put on the top and how he routed out a pretty molding on it, the rounded base and how the rungs are spaced far enough apart to show off a bit of each quilt. Your son could probably sell a lot of them at a quilt show. He would only need to make a couple for display then take orders.

    Like she said. Love it. You must be very proud of the fine job he did.
