The process of cutting the parts for the ladders made obvious the necessity to be diligent when building in batches. In order to achieve the best look for the finished product, I had to ensure that the parts for each ladder were cut from the same boards. This is to make sure that the color and grain pattern on each part is as similar as can be – as sometimes even the same species of wood can vary greatly from tree to tree.
