Free Skate Ramp Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about skate ramp plans. If you are a skater and you have some space at your disposal, make sure you check out this super simple project. You can adjust the size of the ramp to suit your needs and budget. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

How to build a skate ramp

The first step of the project is to build the sides for the skate ramp. Mark the cut lines on the 3/4″ plywood and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a neat result.
