Building a step ramp is easy. In just a few steps and a few hours, you can build your own wooden step ramp to help with accessing the back of your vehicle or any other raised surface. Build a step ramp using two 2x6s, two 2x4s and a sheet of 3/4″ plywood. The key to doing it right is to make sure the slope of the ramp is 1/12. This means that for every 12 inches in length, there’s an inch rise or fall. So if your overall length is 10 feet, each rung will be 8 inches high.
Step-ramps can help people in wheelchairs get in and out of the shower by adding an extension to the bottom step. This step ramp is a great way to make sure that anyone who needs one can easily enter your home without worrying about stability.
