Here is a rendering for a piece I've been working on. Likely only one of these will be made but I did three to give a reference for comparison. I'm partial to the one on the far left.

This is a picture of the gluing up of the stringers (sides of the ladder). It took 56 clamps and many feet of rubber tubing to get it just right.

In this shot you can see the rubber tubing used to hold the plies together between the clamps. The top stringer is being glued (the bottom one is dry already) and tied to the bottom one to ensure that the curves match exactly. I really hope they didn't get glued together too badly. On my way to the shop now to check.
