umm well all i bought for wood was (1) 4 by 8ft. sheet of 3/4 in. particle board and the top is just a thin peice of bendable wood i found at home depot that was also 4 by 8ft. only cost $19 too. the ramp is 2 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide, and 5 ft. long.

Looks like a good sensible ramp which is rarely seen on here! lol Most of them look like something people use as a transition to climb a wall. Kudos on the design! [sm=thumbup.gif] The only bad part is that it looks like the sides & back are made of chipboard. It so, don't let it get wet! Hopefully we can see some action pics soon!

particleboard will absorb watter and swell and eventually fall apart if it is exposed to water ie rain and snow. Go to home depot and get some polyurathane and give it a couple of coats so it will make it last longer. It looks awesome great job!!!

lol even though you can't see them, there is screws!! alright i will put somthin over the particle board to help prevent absorbing or rain even though it won't be exposed to water.
