My New Ladder Shelf

Digital Image

Digital ImageSome paperhangers keep their tools in a tool belt worn around their waist. I prefer to have my tools easily accessible sitting on top of my ladder. To keep them from rolling off and falling to the floor (or smashing my clients’ countertops), I’ve fashioned trays to attach to the top of my two step ladders.

This one is made from 1″x10″ board, and edged with a trimmed yardstick, which is just wide enough to form a neat wall around the tray. It attaches to the top of the ladder with wing nuts, and can be removed when not needed. It’s sealed with Danish Oil, and the bottom is lined with clear Contact Paper, to protect from water and other materials.

I made this one last week, and love it already.
