Ladder Chest - As part of a room remodel, this was chosen as one of the "Best Bedroom Remodels 2010" by This Old House. Designed to meet the needs of the room remodel, this multipurpose piece combines the function of a ladder and chest of drawers. The 2-sided ladder leads up to a loft, while the chest replaces the dresser that was previously located on the wall. The drawers are Baltic birch and the stairs are quarter-sawn oak. Maple planks are highlighted above the chest to match the ceiling of the room.
