Has anyone ever built anything by themselves with wood? I want a step-ladder as the only ladder we have is massive & I can hardly even lift it, let alone get it down the hall from the garage without bashing the walls. I was thinking about building myself one but I don't really know where to start - I haven't really worked with wood since manual arts at high-school.
I don't even know what kind of wood or how much to get. I don't really know how to use power tools, but I think DH has hand saws & hand drills etc so I should be able to do it without using the power tools.
Oh yeh, and lets just say that anything mathematical is not my forte. So does anyone have any tips for working out the dimensions etc in a way that is simple & easy to understand?
Maybe I'm being a bit ambitious, I don't know. I can't drive so I haven't yet figured out how I will get the wood, but I will see if we have enough lying around at home. If I don't build it I won't get one cause DH is not at all interested in doing anything in the way of home maintenance, and therefore I don't have a choice but to teach myself how to do it - and to do some of it I need a step-ladder. So learning to build one is my first step on my home-handywoman journey I guess!
