How To Make A Portable Skateboard Ramp
Learning how to make a portable skateboard ramp can take some time and skill, but if done correctly, the results make it all worthwhile. A few materials are needed to build a skateboard ramp, and a basic understanding of craftsmanship and of how to use tools is imperative. Following is how to make a portable skateboard ramp
How to Make a Portable Skateboard Ramp: Materials
- 3 sheets of plywood
- 10 two-by-fours (the exact number may vary)
- A saw (a table saw or electric hand saw will be easiest to use)
- 1/8 inch nails
How to Make a Portable Skateboard Ramp
- First, purchase all of the necessary materials. Set them in the area where you are going to construct the ramp.
- Next, note the actual dimensions of your ramp. Using three sheets of plywood, lined up length-wise, you can find your ramps size, but you will not be attaching the three segments, making the ramp portable. Now you will actually learn how to construct the portable skateboard ramp.
- With two-by-fours as the base, cut smaller sections of two-by-fours, which will be stood up to support the curved plywood on either end. To build one side of the ramp, set two two-by-four sections side by side, set apart by the width of the plywood, and nail segments of two-by-fours, cut the designate the outline of the curved plywood on top of the base pieces. The ones furthest away from the center of the ramp should be tallest. Then, once you have two bases (for one side of the ramp), nail the plywood on top of these.
- Construct the other side of the ramp using the same method. Now, after two individual, curved ramps have been constructed, you will learn how to build the skateboard portable ramp's interior section, which will rest between the two sloped sides.
- With two more two-by-fours, run horizontal bases between the bottoms of the two separate, curved ramps, depending on your desired length of the middle. Nail the third piece of plywood to this. Do not connect the sides with the middle section, and you can take this portable ramp anywhere, and set it up on location.
Learning how to make a portable skateboard ramp is a serious process, but it can provide great fun after it is complete. Once finished, the three segments may be brought with you in the car, and set up anywhere for use as a basis for great skateboarding tricks.
