Tech Deck Basics
A Tech Deck is a miniature skateboard that is popular among skateboarding enthusiasts and collectors. While most Tech Decks are only meant to be displayed or used for tricks, some people enjoy customizing their Tech Decks and making them into ramps and other obstacles. Making a Tech Deck ramp is a fun and easy project that anyone can do with a little time and patience.
What is a Tech Deck?
A Tech Deck is a miniaturized skateboard that is popular among children and adults alike. These toys are used for performing skateboarding tricks, and they can be found in many toy stores and online retailers. While Tech Decks are typically made of wood, they can also be made of plastic. Tech Decks come in a variety of designs, and they can be customized to suit your personal preferences.
What do you need to make a Tech Deck ramp?
To make a basic Tech Deck ramp, you will need:
-One sheet of plywood (preferably 1/2 inch or thicker)
-One piece of 2×4 lumber (8 feet long)
-One piece of 1×4 lumber (6 feet long)
-One piece of 1×2 lumber (4 feet long)
-Paint or varnish (optional)
Making the Ramp
You will need some things before you start making the Tech Deck ramp. You will need a saw, screws, a drill, a piece of plywood, and some nails. The first thing you need to do is to cut the plywood into two pieces. Once you have done that, you will need to drill some holes into the plywood.
Step 1: Choose your location
When choosing a location for your ramp, make sure you have enough space. You will need at least a foot on either side of the ramp, and more if you plan on doing any tricks. Once you have found the perfect spot, clear away any debris that may be in your way.
Step 2: Gather your materials
In order to make your own Tech Deck skateboard ramp, you will need:
-Two pieces of plywood, each measuring 3 feet by 2 feet
-One piece of 2×4 lumber, at least 8 feet long
-Nail Gun with 1 inch nails
-Paint or varnish (optional)

Step 3: Build your ramp
Now it’s time to start building your ramp. To do this, you will need to gather some materials. For the sides of your ramp, you will need two pieces of plywood that are at least 3 feet long and 2 feet wide. For the Ramp surface, you will need one piece of plywood that is at least 3 feet long and 1 foot wide. You will also need some screws, nails, or staples to attach the plywood together, and some sandpaper.
When you have all of your materials gathered, sand the edges of all of the plywood pieces so that they are smooth. Then, take your two pieces of plywood that will be used for the sides of the ramp, and nail or screw them together so that they form a 90 degree angle. Next, take your piece of plywood that will be used for the ramp surface, and nail or screw it onto the top of the two side pieces so that it forms a “V” shape.
Now that your ramp is built, you will need to attach it to something so that it doesn’t move around when you skate on it. To do this, you can use screws or nails to attach it to a piece of wood or metal that is at least 3 feet long and 2 feet wide. Once your ramp is securely attached, you’re ready to skate!
Tips for Making the Perfect Tech Deck Ramp
A Tech Deck ramp is a great way to show off your skateboarding skills. It can also be a lot of fun to build. You will need some basic materials and a little bit of time to create your own ramp. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Tip 1: Use the right materials
If you want your tech deck ramp to be durable and long lasting, you need to use the right materials. For the base of the ramp, we recommend using either plywood or MDF (medium density fiberboard). Both of these materials are strong and will stand up well to repeated use.
For the surface of the ramp, you have a few different options. You can use either carpeting or outdoor turf. If you choose to use carpeting, make sure it is firmly glued down and that there are no loose edges. Outdoor turf is a great option because it is durable and easy to clean.
Tip 2: Make sure your ramp is stable
If your ramp is not stable, your skater will not be able to complete the tricks you want him to. The last thing you want is for your skater to bail and get hurt, so make sure your ramp is firmly attached to the ground. You can use sandbags or cinder blocks to weigh it down, or you can nail it to a piece of plywood that is nailed to the ground. Just make sure it doesn’t move!
Tip 3: Don’t make your ramp too steep
One of the most common mistakes people make when building a Tech Deck ramp is making the ramp too steep. This can cause your riders to lose control and wipe out, and it can also damage your ramp. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that your ramp has a gradual incline so that riders can build up speed gradually.
