How to Make a Fingerboard Half Pipe Ramp With Books

Introduction: How to Make a Fingerboard Half Pipe Ramp With Books

I thought to myself on my way home from school today that it would be awesome to have a half pipe ramp for my fingerboard. When I got home I was organizing my books when it hit me like a brick in the head: I could make a fingerboard skatepark out of these! So I made one with two ramps, a set of stairs and a grind rail, all out of books! Cool, right? So then I thought that it would be better if I made a big half pipe ramp instead, exactly like what you see above. So let's see how to build it!

Step 1: Build It!

Here's how to make the ramp. Follow the pictures. Sorry if they are blurry and/or too bright. Make 2 stacks of 3 hardcover books, with the backing facing outwards, then add one open to make the ramp part, then top it off with two soft cover books with the backing facing in, then one hardcover on each stack. If you have four MINECRAFT handbooks, or four books similar, you can make it look better by adding them to the back and sides of the stacks. Then add a thin softcover or hardcover under the ramp to make it smoother and to elevate it.

Step 2: You're Done!

Now you are done with your ramp! Now you can do some cool tricks like grinding, Ollie, or shove it. Hope you enjoyed this instructable! Cya
