This time some of Ace’s neighborhood pals picked up some scrap lumber from a construction site and we made another ramp: A “spine”. We did have to buy some new plywood for the actual surface of the ramp, but using the scrap certainly saved us some money. We started out with some plans from the Internet, but because we are experienced skate ramp builders now, we soon abandoned them and built the spine however we wanted to. It turned out pretty good, and the guys have been getting lots more use out of it than I expected.
