Finally we got it together…… Here is the second and final part on the “How to build your own miniramp” article.
Part one here.
As you might remember the first episode ended with the first layers of plywood beeing applied.
13. Now it’s time for the iron pipe (from now on – coping) In order to get a coping that actually gives some riding challenges it is important
that you’ll achieve some proper distance between coping and the riding surface, in our case approx 12 mm.
14. Next step will be to apply the riding surface, in this project we choose WBP classified plywood (weather and boilproof) 6,5mm.
Important to have the rough side facing up. Otherwise you will end up with a very slippery ramp..
15. Apply the riding surface so it is overlapping previous layer. No diagonal extrawork needed for home usage.
16. Platforms is really nice, dress them up with the riding surface aswell.
17. Make sure refreshments are available if anyone of your friends comes around to give a hand…
19. Some fence and paint left…..but wtf it’s skateable!
20. Invite some friends over for some skate and refreshments…
