Step 1: Cutting Wood

We started with one bog long piece of wood and cut it into 3 pieces to make a collapsible ramp.

Step 2: Hinges

Srewing in hinges on either side so the pieces would fold.

Step 3: Latches

Installing latches so that the board would stay flat for the dog to walk on.

Step 4: Doggy Ramp Is Ready

I will staple some carpeting on it so that she has better grip to walk on. This will make my baby's life a little less painful.
