This instructable will show you how to make a simple kicker / launch style ramp that can be used for a variety of wheeled hobbies, including but not limited to:
Skateboarding / Rollerblading
BMX / Biking
RC Cars & Trucks
I'll be using this ramp for BMX and RC cars so it needs to be strong enough for the heavy BMX
This instructable doesn't include diagrams or direct plans because I designed it as I went along, you will be able to do this to make the ramp specific to your needs.
I made this ramp over 2 days, it doesn't take that long but I spread it out, you'll notice the pictures get darker as the first day progresses.
This is my first instructable, so be nice :D
Step 1: Making the shape
You can use any wood or thickness you like, though I've found most of these small ramps are made of plywood, for the sides.
I'm using 18mm plywood that I had lying around, you can use thicker or thinner, though I wouldn't go less than 18mm if you plan on using a bike or board on it, rc cars can cope with a lot thinner.
After you've found some wood, cut it into a rectangle, make one side the length you want the ramp and make the other side as high as you want it.
