Ramp Construction

1. Cut a 4 foot long by 7 5/8 inch wide strip from the quarter inch plywood.

2. Define the nicest side of plywood as the top.

3. Attach a 4 foot length of 1 × 2 pine board along one of the top edges of the plywood strip with 9 of the one inch long wood screws and some wood glue.

4. Attach a second 4 foot length of 1 × 2 pine board along the other edge of the plywood strip with the remaining one inch long wood screws and some wood glue.

6. Mark the center of the back face of each of the two 1 × 2 pine boards. Drill 11/64 inch diameter pilot holes at those locations.

7. Screw a screw hook into the back end of each of the two 1 × 2 pine boards. When completed, the open end of the hook should be pointing downward and the two hooks should each extend an equal distance from the back of the ramp.
