Default Ladder Stands - WIP

Started to build a couple ladder stands last Thursday after work. Using 1 1/4" sq. tube I made the ladders and framed the platforms(minus cross bracing) for each stand, so far. Hoping to finish them up this week, once I get back from working in Ingleside. Plan to put two boat seats with swivel pedestals on each platform. Stand should be about 11.5' high with a 4'x2' platform.

Thanks y'all. Won't be able to finish them this week and going to be out of town this weekend. They will have to wait until next week.

You forget to take pics before you put it in the tree?

Sorry for the wait. Hung one stand up this weekend and got so busy with filling and fixing feeders that I didn't get a chance to snap any pictures. I'll be sure to post some up later this evening after work.

Sweet stand man, looks plenty sturdy and comfortable. Will be fun to hunt out of.

Good looking stand. Question why did you put so much angle on the ladder?

The picture doesn't really show the true angle. It looks much steeper in the picture than it does in person. Its super easy to get up and down from.
