  • What a brilliant idea to make it fit under the bed when not in use! I love this!

  • Here's one more improvement that could be made here.... construct it so that drawers fit into the open end. It then becomes under-bed storage, too. In the section that flips, make it so that the drawer could be used in either position.

  • Great idea M.A.S. Might I add one more suggestion, for those who own shorter dogs like Mini Dachshunds considering running a router along the top edge so they don't scrape their bellies on the way up. As for issues with traction, possibly something like this, http://www.amazon.com/Safe-Way-Traction-Rubberized-Safety/dp/B00DP3QCEC/ref=sr_1_27?ie=UTF8&qid=1437748915&sr=8-27&keywords=stair+traction

  • Marco, Thanks for the feedback. I cut up a rubber no slip kitchen mat, it seemed to do the trick.

  • I love this. How can I learn the way of thinking you've used in this design?
