  3. Once you know what you want in the park, you may begin building it. Learning how to build a miniature skate park relies on your ability to construct the many jumps that will be set in it. For ramps, use sheets of wood, supported by wedges of wood, cut to shapes that support the ramps. Use wood glue to secure ramps and toothpicks to the surface. If making curved structures, sheet foam cut to shape is better. If gluing sections of this together, you will need to use model glue. These may be bent and propped up to make structures such as quarter pipes and half pipes.
  4. Fill the small park with miniature ramps, pipes, and other structures, secured to the surface. This can take some time and many attempts, as at first, it can be hard to cut the right shapes and to have your park looking good with all of its structures.
  5. Once your park has nice looking structures, paint it with model paint. Use whatever colors you like.
