    Ramp Building

    What is the best type of wood for the base of the ramp. Well, the curved part. I don't know the technical terms. The part that the tires actually touch. Anywho, what's the best type of wood for that part? Thanx!

    3/4 inch plywood is the best. I wouldn't use anyhting thinner. I was using 1/2 inch once and it broke right in half while I was on the ramp. Just stand it up against something and let water run over the top for a few hours.
    Booyah!!

    Ok. Sounds like a plan. I hope to build some soon, but it'll probably never happen. Oh well, a kid can dream.

    Them damned old people and their "sooped-up" Rascal scooter things. Catching some sick air off their stolen ramp. I can see it now.
