Well, for Valentines Day I made my lovely wife of many years a Quilt/Blanket Ladder. I used more of the cedar from our deck that I redid in 2007.

My wife wants me to make her one too.

Always hard making something for the wife, she is very particular and can't make up her mind while I'm the opposite.

So while I could bang one out in little time I spend 2-3 weeks trying to get her to decide what she wants.

"Should it be 38 wide, no maybe I should have you make it 36" wide"
So I start and cut the wood up then she'll tell me "no I want it 38" wide":banghead:

On it goes.

Marlin, I asked in the GM thread before I saw this thread. Does Missey make the quilts?

:laugh: Sounds a little bit like Missey. I'd suggest just make one, surprise her if you can . . . she'll probably like it.

Missey's is 6' high and the steps are 18" wide, just about right. The steps are glued/screwed at 10º (16" from the bottom, then at 12" intervals) and I put in wood buttons to cover the screw heads. Also cut your 6' verticals top/bottom at 10º so it sits flat and the steps are level front to rear when set against the wall. (Be careful, I got my first 10º cuts backwards. :laugh:.)

:laugh: I notice this after I had already responded in the Good Morning thread.

:hi: Since two or three weeks, Doris is sewing a quilt, too. When I first heart "quilt" I thought it was something to eat or drink...
