For all but the top layer the wood should be bent with the grain. It bends much easier this way. The basic technique is to screw the bottom of your plywood in place, and have your helper(s) walk slowly up the transition bending it and holding it down with their weight against the frame as they go. Then you, and possibly others work your way up screwing in one row at a time. It's important to have the plywood held flush against the transition framing by your helper(s) when you screw it in. If you rely on the screws to pull the plywood flush, they'll pull through the plywood, or pull the plywood out of place.

How do you protect your ramp against the rain?


Wet damp conditions are not good for your ramp as the wood will more than likely rot after time. This should be taken into consideration before you make your ramp. When building the ramp, make sure to use galvanized screws or nails and use pressure treated wood, you should also paint it for extra protection.

It all depends on the surface Skatelite lasts well over 4 years and so does polyboard if you look after it.

I want to build a dog house for my little dog but don't know if to use plastic or wood. What's a better option?


I would definitely use wood as the prime material to build a dog house. First and foremost wood will keep your dog warm in the winter. Secondly, it is much easier to build wooden dog houses compared to plastic.

Converting Little Tikes Roller Blades


My nephew has these skates and I just converted them from the training position to the inline position. The skates come with a bag of extra parts that you need to make the conversion. Basically you need the same bolt that is used for the first wheel and the middle wheel since the back two wheels are mounted on a long bolt that doesn't work for just one wheel. If you didn't get these spare parts then you're probably out of luck. If you're converting to the inline position you might be able to just use the front and rear positions but the plastic frame may not be strong enough. Good luck!
