wut wood shud i make my ramp out of?  

24 Apr 2004 18:37
dude u want mdf to put on the outside and to make your frame u need 2x4and then ply wood to cover it .dude then that is the strongest ramp.pretty dern heavy to.  

26 Apr 2004 20:03
rite then...... well...... um...... er...... oh crap, i dont no!!!! think 4 yourself man! However, i would recommend that u use something that wont break in like 5 minutes...... i mean, nobody would be that stupid...... rite?.... :roll:  

27 Apr 2004 18:24
yeah mdf wont break but if u make your ramp out of just plywood than it will.  

28 Apr 2004 22:33
Actually ply wood wont break that easy. Depending on what you plan to build with it. But i made a kicker ramp out of PARTICLE board, and its holding up pretty fine. Just i put about 4 braces under it. But yeah i dont really recommend particle board. I only got it cuz it was way cheaper than the Plywood was.

well, dont make it out of 2mm plastic. It just collapses under the weight of a snail.  

29 Apr 2004 12:51
hahaha who makes a ramp out of plastic besides factor x?????  

03 May 2004 05:45
Hey! There is nothing wrong with plastic! Wait... we're talking about ramps... forget I said that...

Anyway, my dads a wood worker so I asked him. He wasnt that helpful. First he said anything and then he said 3 quarter inch plywood. I guess it doesnt really matter what you use, it just depends on how you support it.

As a general rule, I wouldnt use anything that you wouldnt personally feel comfortable putting all your weight on.

Good Luck! Geez, I sure am glad that I've got the courts (skatepark... FREE skatepark) around the corner, so I'll never have to build anything myself.  

03 May 2004 07:02
if u dont build 1 then what will u do when they shut the park down?well gotta go to work in the mornin....man i love my life...hahaha NOT!!!!  

04 May 2004 08:42
ive goyt a half pipe in my garden its only 4 foot wide and 4 foot high but im planning on doubling it width ways its made out of ply go to [url]www.rampplans.com[/url] if you need help  

04 May 2004 10:24
o lord, don't i feel silly. all u r here sayin that u r all pro rampbilders, and here i am with a ramp with a snail-shaped hole in it  

04 May 2004 18:00
The Courts won't close. The land is owned by a local skate park, and they’re happy as long as we keep buying our stuff from them. It is our responsibility though, as we are the people who skate there, to maintain it. Fair deal if you ask me.

But if I did ever need a ramp, I'd just use my feminine charm to sucker some poor loser into building it for me :wink:

But if I did ever need a ramp, I'd just use my feminine charm to sucker some poor loser into building it for me :wink:[/quote]shoot i'll build 1 for u...but i dont know if u r HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

05 May 2004 07:42
Well then, lets make a list then shall we-

*I'm 5 foot 2 inches tall (short :oops: )

*My eyes are purple (contacts rock!) There really brown naturally, but no one ever sees them

*I'm NOT fat, at all. Size 1 jeans! (I'm proud of that)

*I've got really really long curly thick hair (it's kinda crazy, but it looks ok, and I've grown to like it) Its pretty much brown with a slight trace of blonde from when I was a wee little one.

*I'm not heavily endowed, but I'm not flat chested.

*I've got three freckles on my left cheek

*jeans and t-shirts most of the time, and my black hightop converses with red and black checkered shoelaces! My socks never match either...

So no, I'm probably not what you would consider hot, but then again you never really know until you see someone. I'm not ugly... but then again, all I'd have to do is kiss you and you'd build my ramp :wink: I'm good at that... I'd be the most beautiful thing you ever saw after I kissed you. Thats my one god given talent...

Just ask my boyfriend!  

05 May 2004 08:09

07 May 2004 03:53
yeh fuck internet girlfriends n all that shit r for deprate people who cant get nothin ..... how do u know nolaqueen is what she says she is.......... (no offence) nolaqueen :wink:  

09 May 2004 11:33
I am who I say I am because I would never lie about something like that. I've had experience with internet liers, and in the end I ended up getting RAPED... All it takes is some nice guy saying he wants to meet you in person and go to a movie.

And it's not that I'm just really dumb or something... internet stalkers are very cunning. I had talked to this particular guy several months and thought I knew him well. He was my FRIEND, and that's exactly what he wanted me to think.

But then again, if you dont even believe I'm who I say I am, then why should you believe this?

And I have a REAL boyfriend anyway, who was the only person who didn't think I was a huge slut for what happened... You know guys at my school think I'm easy now? Well I'm sick of people thinking that I'm not who I really am, so maybe I just won't even post here anymore...  

09 May 2004 21:40

I couldn't tell that you were trying to be funny. Probably because all you've done sinse I posted on this thread was put me down. If you didnt realize, your little "joke" was ruining ours.

I hope your happy, now that you successfully hurt my feelings.

And I know I'm not pretty... but I never really felt ugly until now.  

27 May 2004 06:27

27 May 2004 08:49
Well if your gona make a ramp and your not gona move it at all. Make a strong frame probley metal then use concreate (Not spelt right, DAMNIT).
