First thing you need to know is that the radius will be sharper than the quarterpipe that leads into the roll-in. BUT, you want it to be a smooth transition, so what i did was draw my quarter pipe, and then above it, draw a horizontal line at the height that my rollin will be. then i drew a circle tangent to the quarter pipe and the line. i experimented with radii untill i found a nice transition (about 4'6"). then cut it out just like a quarter pipe, and save what would normally be the scrap. then just mark off your studs and build it just like a quarter pipe. check out my project page (bens Mini ramp) for an example.
