Wood to use

Postby rancidgerma on Fri Sep 14, 2007 8:26 pm

Hey, What kind of wood is best to use? I'm on a buget so a low cost one would suit me best. Thanks.

Welcome rancidgerma,

I'm not really sure about the exact name of the 2x4's, I realize there are a lot of kinds now a days, next time I am at the store I will write down the description, but I'm not even sure its a standard thing, if you ask the guy at home depot what they use for outdoor decks you will be good with that. I do know that you can get treated or untreated, and if you are building the ramp inside you can use untreated to save money, otherwise you will want untreated.

Same goes for the plywood sides with the treated vs untreated, I always just find 3/4" plywood that looks solid, not too many knots in the wood, again i'll write down the exact description next time I am at the store.

Finally for the ultra low budget you can look around the neighborhood for scraps and just make whatever you find work. I live on a farm so there is always extra wood laying around and I often just use what I have.

Also there is the issue of surfacing, if you click on "General Building Tips" to the left you will see the surfacing options.

If there is a particular lumber item you were wondering about I might be able to answer your question better.

I built my ramp for $16 and alot of elbow grease. I went to construction demo sites and asked to recycle the old studs for homes being demo'd. There were 2x4's, 2x6's and 4x4's.
You may even get lucky and get some plywood.

The hard part about this is that you have to clean the wood up which is a little time consuming but hey its free and you won't feel bad if you mess a piece up during construction of the ramp.

There is picture of the ramp I built in the introduction section of the message board.
