Step 1: Materials and Equipment

What you need:

  • 48"x48"x1" piece of wood for ramp
  • Two 32"x3"x1" piece of wood for supports
  • Tape measure
  • Jigsaw cutter
  • Hammer
  • Nails
  • Saw
  • Pen

Step 2: Measure and Draw Cutting Lines

Measure along the 2 opposite sides 16" and draw a line connecting the two marks.

Then on the smaller half of the line, draw a diagonal line from corner of wood to corner of line on opposite side.

You should have drawn out a 32"x48" square and two 16" tall triangles.

Step 3: Cut Along the Lines

Use the jigsaw cutter to cut along the lines you have made and you will have the base of your ramp and the two sides to the ramp.

Step 4: Putting in Together

Stand the two triangles along the floor and lay the rectangular piece of wood on top for the ramp base. Then drill holes either side along the sides and then hammer the nails into them.

Step 5: Side Supports

Now to keep the sides together when the ramp is put under pressure take the two 32"x3"x1" pieces of wood and lay one at the top and bottom of the front of the ramp drill 2 holes either side of the pieces and hammer the nails in.

Thats it now you have your own ramp, please take care when using the ramp, and remember I'm not responsible for how you use the ramp and any injuries caused. Have fun!

    This look pretty good, all the others i've seen look much harder but this one seems a bit simpler...
