Ladders are so easy to re-purpose.  Heres the support half of an old A-frame ladder.
They all start out like this.
I drilled out the connectors and hinges holding the two halves together, so they now resemble orchard ladders (ignore the ladder on the far left).
 
If the tray is salvageable, great.  If not, you can rebuild it with reclaimed wood.  I salvaged these old redwood slats from a defunct lawn chair.

Ladders are so much fun!
