Shop-Built Ladder Tray
Published 8:00 am Monday, April 13, 2009
Because his ladder didn’t have a fold-down work tray, Club member James Callen of La Habra, California, couldn’t attach his paint tray. So he built his own detachable work tray. He used a section of plywood outfitted with two end blocks and a support block underneath. The end blocks keep the paint tray from sliding off of the plywood platform, and the support block is grooved to fit over the ladder’s aluminum cross brace. James even made a small tray that fastens to the top of the ladder for resting his paintbrush.
