* Treaty pressurized timber beams
* Sheets of plywood
* Plywood panels
* Power Saw
* Electric Screwdriver
* Screw Steel
Tape measure *
* Gloves
* Facemask

Since wood involves the use of power tools, you should study the instructions and safety manuals before you start working on your project.

To successfully build a ramp, you need to plan the entire project in advance. A ramp is composed of side walls with wooden beams between the two. Under the guidelines, the ramp shall have a height of one inch for every 12 inches in length. This ratio should be referred to while measuring plank of wood in the steps. The framework with the side walls and wooden beams is then covered with sheets of plywood polite. This makes the surface of the ramp. In addition to this, two pieces of plywood should be used to make a landing stabilized at the beginning and end of the ramp.

Step 3 - Measuring the forest

Use a tape measure to measure the sideboards and wooden beams. The measures depend on the length of the ramp will be made. Remember the report mentioned above and cut the sides that look like triangles with right angle (height, length and slope). The length of wooden beams depends on the width of the ramp. After the appropriate entries have been taken, go to the next step.

Use stainless steel screws to attach plywood panels on the main body of the ramp. This should be done before fixing sheets of plywood on the ramp.
