How much does a little ramp cost to construct? Mini ramp construction is a fun and reasonably affordable method to start into skateboarding. They can be a wonderful addition to any household and give hours of entertainment and physical activity. However, before you can enjoy your new miniature ramp, you must first construct it.
- Here is an introduction to building a miniature ramp.
- Cost: The cost of constructing a tiny ramp will vary based on the materials used and the ramp’s dimensions.
- Typically, you may anticipate to pay between $100 and $300 for a ramp of adequate size.
- Tools and Supplies: To construct your ramp, you will need a few tools, including a saw, drill, screwdriver, and hammer.
Additionally, you will need wood boards (2x4s work well), plywood, screws, and nails. You may also choose to line the ramp with decking material or carpet. Constructing the Ramp: First, the 2x4s must be chopped to the necessary length. Using screws or nails, connect the 2x4s together.
Upon completion of the frame, cover it with plywood. For a sturdier ramp, OSB or decking material might be utilized. Once the plywood is in place, fasten it with screws or nails. Line the ramp’s borders with carpet or decking material to complete the structure. This will reduce skating injuries and improve the appearance of the ramp.

You may also add a layer of plywood to the ramp’s surface to make it smoother. You are now ready to skate! Always use safe skating techniques and wear protective gear. Have fun!
How many 2x4s do I require to construct a tiny ramp?
Developing the Quarter Pipes! – Two of the quarter pipes will be 8 feet wide, while the other two will be 4 feet wide. Then, we’ll connect one of each to create a 12-foot-wide ramp. The next step is to cut all of the 2x4s that will be used to frame each quarter pipe.
To acquire the correct length, we must deduct 1.5″ from the width of each 3/4″ plywood transition. This gives us a 2×4 length of 94.5″ for the longer, broader ramps and 46.5″ for the shorter, narrower ramps. Once these lengths are determined, we cut all 2x4s to length for all four quarter pipes. There are required (34) 2x4s for the two wide ramps and (17) for each of the shorter ramps.
To frame the quarter pipes, we attach an upright 2×4 to each corner of the transition, a 2×4 on its side at the top of the slope, and then an upright 2×4 every 8″ until we reach the bottom. We also spaced them 8″ apart along the top, and we cut some shorter pieces to place beneath the 2x4s at the top for additional deck support.
