Hi,

After we dreamed about it as kids.. Me and my friends finally built one.

2X4 structure, 2 layers of plywood on top( In retrospect, I recommend to do 3).
the entire ramp cost around 1500$, and took 3 days build.

link to video that show the whole process – https://youtu.be/HVhYVELIjVg

Thanks,
Daniel.

Very Nice! I bet gluing / installing the second layer was not too easy. Looks great, what did you use as a finish to protect against the weather?

What kind of plywood? Thinking with the skateboard I had growing up (adjustable roller skates nailed to a 2×4) I would break my neck parts. Use it wisely.

thanks.

the second layer was a bit tricky.. we use 2 layers of Okuma plywood and finish with 2 coats exterior wood stain.

Wow I had no idea how big it was until I saw the shot of you in the frame work. That is a big project and it will be worth it for all the kids in the neighborhood! Get them to sign a waiver for injuries in your yard!

cheers, Jim

Huh, plantation grown African mahogany marine plywood. It didn’t look like the CDX I see around here. I recon it will last a bit longer outdoors too. :-)
