Tech Deck Basics
A Tech Deck is a miniature skateboard that is popular among kids and adults alike. They are perfect for performing tricks and are very portable. You can take them with you wherever you go. You can also make your own ramps and other obstacles to do tricks with your Tech Deck. In this article, we will show you how to make a Tech Deck ramp.
What is a Tech Deck?
A Tech Deck is a miniature skateboard that is popular with kids and adults alike. The decks are usually made of plastic and are used to perform tricks and jumps on. They are also often collectible, with many people trading and selling them like traditional skateboards.

What do you need to make a Tech Deck ramp?
In order to make a Tech Deck ramp, you will need:
-One sheet of plywood
-One Tech Deck
-One box of screws
Once you have gathered all of the necessary materials, you can begin construction on your Tech Deck ramp. Begin by tracing the outline of the Tech Deck onto the plywood. Using the saw, cut out the outlined shape. Next, take the screws and attach the Tech Deck to the plywood. Be sure to screw it in securely so that it does not move around or come apart easily. Finally, use the drill to make two holes in the top of the ramp. These holes will be used to attach the ramp to whatever object you will be using it on (e.g., a skateboard, a fingerboard, etc.).
Making the Ramp
You will need some supplies before you get started. For this project you will need: 1 piece of cardboard that is at least 3 feet by 3 feet, duct tape, a knife, and 4 Tech Decks. Tech Decks are small skateboards that you can find at your local Walmart or Target. Once you have gathered your supplies, you are ready to get started!
Step 1: Cut the plywood
Using a saw, cut two pieces of plywood to the desired size of your ramp. We recommend that you make your ramp at least 2 feet wide and 4 feet long.
Next, use a saw to cut a 2×4 into two pieces that are 2 feet long. These will be the sides of your frame.
Step 2: Assemble the sides of the ramp
Using the 4″ x 4″ pieces of lumber, create two sides for the ramp. Nail or screw the pieces together so that they’re snug. Make sure that the sides are exactly four feet long.
Step 3: Connect the sides of the ramp
Use the screws and bolts to connect the two sides of the ramp together. Make sure that the sides are flush with each other before you tighten the screws.
Step 4: Attach the plywood to the frame
Use a drill to attach the plywood to the frame. Make sure that the screws are long enough to go through the plywood and into the 2x4s. You will need two screws for each joint where the plywood meets a 2×4.
Step 5: Add the finishing touches
If you want to get really fancy, you can round off the edges of your tech deck ramp with a sander. Just be careful not to sand too much or you’ll end up with a ramp that’s too narrow to ride on.
You can also add a professional touch by painting your ramp. A can of spray paint will do the trick nicely, or you can use paint and a brush if you’re feeling more creative. Just make sure to let the paint dry completely before you try riding on your ramp.
