Introduction: How to Build a Ramp
Why would you build a ramp? Well, this is a ramp for beginner BMX, skateboard and scooter riders. This ramp is good for anybody who wants to learn some tricks or just have fun and mess around. It is an easy way to build a ramp that takes about 30 minutes to build.
Step 1: Supplies
What you will need...
1) 2-5 pieces of 2X4 scrap lumber (more wood for a higher jump)
2) A flat piece of plywood for your platform that is at least 3/8 of an inch thick (so it can hold you and your equipment) make your platform about 16 inches wide and 28 inches long
4) 4-8 screws (varying in size to accommodate ramp)
6) Hand saw.
7) Square ruler to make right angle lines that make proper cuts
8) Spray paint (optional)
Step 2: Marking
Line the 2X4s up, take the platform, line it up on one side of the 2X4s, mark the the other side of the 2X4s with the marker to show where to saw off the extra wood, use the right angle ruler to make your lines straight.
Step 3: Cutting 2X4
Cut excess wood to line 2X4 up with the platform.
Step 4: Stacking 2X4
Stack the the 2X4s up (this makes the incline so it launches you further, the more stack the more elevation.)
Step 5: Marking 2X4's to Screw
Take the marker, draw were you are going to screw in to secure.
Step 6: Drilling the 2X4s Together
Take the 2X4s and drill them up so that the 3-2X4s are stuck together. You could use 2-5 pieces but I'm using 3
Step 7: Adding Platform to Base and Attaching
Take the flat peice of wood (platform) and set it up so that it is lined up with the 2X4 stack (remember you drilled them together). Use the drill to screw in the screws so now the ramp is solid. (hint:make sure the screws are solid and none of the ramp is going to
Step 8: Metal Piece
Place metal at the end of ramp to allow for wheels to ride over bump.
Step 9: Spray Painting
(optional) you can take the spray paint and put designs on it to make it cool.
