I have a kitchen with a high ceiling and want to install an extra level of shelves to make use of the space. To reach the top shelves, a ladder is required. Ideally, it would be attached to a rail and be removable.

ladder on rails

My question is: How can I build this type of thing? What parts do I need to make the rail and ladder myself?

    Can we can clarify terms to help the OP? Those are often called "library ladders" in english. That term gets you close enough in google to shop yourself.

    Are you looking to save time or money? If so, you'd probably be better off buying the proper ladder hardware in the first place.
