ladders out of wood

I have been contemplating how to make ladders out of wood for a long time (to tack onto my wooden buildings). I settled on the idea of cutting grooves into a board using a dado blade. But the big problem is how do you make a bunch of grooves evenly spaced?

Also, I had assumed I would use a strip of wood the width of ladder. Then I found this video and it struck me. Use a wide board and put groves all the way across. Then rip it into strips the width of the ladder I want. Plus the video shows how to make evenly spaced groves super easy!

Once you have them you can cut to length, paint and tack on with glue or a nail gun (pin nailer preferred). So basically I would make one big board of these that could be cut into numerous ladders

I haven't tried this out yet, but I know some other folks on here are woodworkers so I thought I would share the idea.

Watch the video and I think it should be clear. The main trick is getting the dado blade the right width and depth.
