Re: Library-type ladders in kitchen
Here's another source Rockler
As yo look at the picture you will see that virtually all the downward weight is on the rollers at the bottom of the ladder not on the rail at the top.
What you want to do is quite feasible because you will not be on the top of the ladder when you are getting into the upper cabinets. The forward pressure on the upper rail will be minimal and the cabinets should have no problem with that.
