New Quilt Ladder

I have been wanting a quilt ladder to display the quilts I am making and I finally got my husband to make me one this weekend.
It isn't exactly what I had asked for, but he was making it from what I said, so next time he makes one he knows what works and what doesn't. He also mentioned a tool he needed to do the sides better for a peg, so I will have to have my son about it and see if he can get him that for christmas. My son works for Bostich and can get tools at a discount, so he always buys dad something new each year. Hopefully they will have whatever it is;)

Their was supposed to be 5 rungs, but I guess my husband didn't hear that, lol. I do make larger heavier quilts, so this will be great for that. Later, I can have him build me a skinnier one with more rungs.

I have a little wall space. I am redoing things a bit at a time, and trying to clear out the clutter and simplify things. I was thinking I should have one in my sewing room, then I can hang unfinished quilts on it.

Debbie, this turned out great!! Kudos to your hubby!!
It's funny as two weeks ago i asked my honey to build me a rugged tobacco ladder - just like this! :)
I don't think his is going to come nearly as nice and finished as yours has!

Love the ladder. I have one (thicker) that my hubby made for me several years ago. I love it.

I actually wanted a rugged one, but he has to be so exact, lol. I told him I will make my own things, some old wood and slap some nails on and that is my idea of building;)
