You need 4 packages of 5-gallon paint sticks (12 large paint sticks total), 2 packages of regular size paint sticks (20 sticks total), Aleene's tacky glue, Paint or Wood Stain, and a hand saw. Watch this quick video for more help.
Cut the curved edge off the small paint sticks ONLY.
Glue 5 small paint sticks together to make 4 total "bars" for the middle of the ladder.
Glue 3 large paint sticks together to make 4 total "legs" for the ladder.
Attach 2 of the legs together using tacky glue to make one long leg. I also glued a large paint stick to the back of the long legs (where they met) as a support piece.
Glue the 4 bars to the legs, measuring to make sure the legs are level and each bar is equal distance apart.
Let the glue dry completely before painting or staining.
