Tobacco Stick Ladder Smaller Size


Today I made a smaller version of my original Tobacco Stick Ladder, which was full size.

I figured not all of us have room for the larger version. And the smaller tobacco stick ladder can be tucked or stashed in many different places than the larger one. Even sat on top of a cabinet to add additional height to a room.

I added some grapevine, along with homespun and a metal hanging star for detail.

For construction of the ladder itself, I used a nail gun because the tobacco sticks are so hard of wood, that you need the force. Otherwise, sitting and tapping with a hammer and small nail really gets you nowhere.

Here's a pic before I finished off the details. You can see the basic structure.


and here's another pic finished:
