Step 3: Overview
The stepladder consists of four different assemblies:
- Back support: Two sides with three joining pieces (stretchers). Joined by dowel-reinforced butt joints
- The steps: Two sides with three steps. Joined by dado joints.
- The top: Five slats with two supports. Joined by dado joints.
- Side supports: Two simple side pieces with rounded ends.
The stepladder folds up to form a compact unit for storage.
