        I guess you could call it a "tool". I've gotten so much mileage out of my "Baker's Scaffold" that I want to say that I'm glad I bought it over a year ago.

        You do need to be careful, because it can be tipsy if you're on uneven ground.
        One other thing about it is that the platform has a very thin wood veneer on it and, although I try to avoid it, I'd occasionally get caught in the rain. The moisture started de-laminating the veneer. So, this spring I applied several coats of polyurethane and added non-skid sand to the final coat.

        Why am I bringing it up? One of the big box home stores is having a great, one day, sale on them today. I paid the full price they show and am still glad I bought it.

        Bakers racks make an excellent drying rack for stained or painted sticks {7'} of casing and cut extension jamb needed for larger projects. Big Grin

        heck, we just put the warped boards on sawhorses and use that. an enterprising fellow with lots of trees could just string ropes between them, and use THAT.

        but whatever tool you have that fits, works.

        now where did I put that flamethrower, I see a mosquito...


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        True, but in a tight spot going vertical increases the layout volume available by the area squared or cubed or something. Or it might be Murphy's Law. Or maybe by Pi x radius Big Grin
        Racks make a great staging area with a simple plank laid across a rung, say for electricians who no longer feels the need to bend over for a hand tool or wire nut ever 30 seconds.
