How to Make a Mini Ramp for a Tech Deck

This is a short instructable on how to make a mini ramp. You'll need some cardboard, duct tape, hot glue, and drinking straws for the coping. I made the ramp before the instructable, so I only have photos of the finished product. The first step is to cut out the pieces for the sides, top, and middle. The pieces can be any size you want. On the part that is going to bend you will want the creases going horizontally. You just have to crease the parts that are going to bend to the right amount. Next you are just going to tape every thing together. Then just fill in any cracks with hot glue. You will also want to add the straws on the top with glue as well. There you go! Your very own mini ramp for tech decks.

    The wrinkles on the curved parts look sort of ugly, it could look a lot better if you sliced the flutes halfway through on the back, then it should form a smooth curve with no wrinkles. Here Ive used some scrap to show you what I mean, using a ruler to guide the blade would make a neater curve. I've seen guys needing 4 stiches in a finger tip from careless fingers in the way when cutting along a straight edge so careful with your fingers.

    Thanks for the tip. I just creased the cardboard because It was simple and easy. But I'll definitely remember the tip if I build another.

    You're welcome, would be awesome to make it like a pop-up book where you flip open and tadaa... ramptime.
    anyways, cool project, looks like it could be a big distraction from the homework. :)
