k that this is a ski website, but i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to build a minI ramp(for skateboarding). there is plans and how to things on the web but if anyone has ever bulit one, cou;ld the share some advice.K++
I have a really nice one in my basement I built about 10 years ago. All i did was cut the "sides" to the basic shape and vert I wanted the ramp. Basically draw out what you want on some 1/2 ply and use the first one as a template for the other three. Connect all the sides with 2/4's to build a basic frame. Screw on 1/4 ply over the frame and cover with masonite/skatelite. Attach coping. Done!
Basically this. Masonite is very expensive there are cheaper alternatives at lowes. I forget what the stuff we got us called but I'll check when I get home it works great and it's like 24 bucks a sheet instead if say a hundred plus.
im not sure man, my dad got nearly all the wood from work (hes a contractor) but i bet if we bought it all it would be somewhere around $1500. we built ours super legit though and its made to last but im sure you could build one for much cheaper
