Full Answer

When making the scooter ramp, take all measurements twice to ensure accuracy.

To make the sloping part of the ramp, cut one plywood piece measuring 1.5 feet in width and 6 feet in length with a circular saw. Also, cut two plywood pieces measuring 1 inch in width and 6 feet in length for the sides of the slope. Sand one end of the slope piece to an angle of about 20 degrees so that the ramp can sit flush with the road or ground. Attach the two side pieces to the main sloping piece.

To make the platform portion of the ramp, cut five square pieces from the plywood, with each one measuring 1.5 by 1.5 feet. Join four of the pieces to make the sides of the platform and use the fifth piece as its top.

Now, attach the sloping and platform pieces and sand the joint. Use wood glue to fill gaps in the joint. Finally, sand the entire ramp using sandpaper to make it smooth throughout.
