Platform for Folding Ladder

Have you ever been on a ladder and discovered there is nowhere to put a tool, cleaning stuff or whatever down....your pockets are to small and your third hand just isn't working. This happen to me today while cleaning the roof of the TT. SO I disappeared to the workshop and built a platform for the top ladder rungs using 1/4" Baltic plywood for the base and 3/4" x 2" poplar cut in half @ a 16degree angle for cleats. When placed on the top rungs the cleats are snug against the outside edges of the two rungs and holds the shelf from moving. It works.
