Hey y’all. It feels good to get outside and enjoy the weather. As some of you know, I’ve been renovating my back yard, well it was time to add a ramp to my new shed so I can move my 4wheeler and lawn mower in and out. This is a 6ft by 8ft ramp all done with Ridgid battery tools (not sponsored)

  1. I'm trying to build a similar ramp, but am having difficulty figuring out the angles to cut the 2x6s for the stringers – yes, I'm no carpenter. How did you use the speed square for the top angle and how did you figure out the bottom angle cut?

  2. Did you have a portable ramp before? Just wondering how you got the mower or whatever it was in the shed at the first of video……… before you started the project.

  3. Kudos for the video content! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you researched – Mahorrla Wooden Paradise Method (search on google)? It is a great one of a kind product for building better sheds and woodworking without the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my work buddy got excellent results with it.

  4. How did you figure out the angles? Also, how high is your shed off the ground and how long did that make your ramp? Thanks!

  5. We have metal siding on ours. I don’t want my husband cutting into the door. 🙄 I hope there’s an alternative!

  6. Great job, but I would add some supports on inside of 2×6 joists by using either treated posts or scrap treated 2×4's screwed to joists and sitting on small pieces of flat blocks like a 2in cap block to keep from sinking. I never like to put wood on the ground, even treated wood. It will still rot. Stagger them. May 3 on inside of each joist. I have 3 motorcycles that go in and out of mine, so it helps strengthen it up. My bro built my latest ramp for me and didn't do that. Now, my ramp sags. Placing supports also takes load off of rim joist in front of building. With enough weight, over time, it could damage this, too. I can draw an illustration if it would show you what I mean. I had 2×4's placed 12 in on center for my joists, but would recommend 2×6's like you used. I used 2×4's to save a little money. I will try and post a video of what I have. Good luck, friend.

  7. Hey! Man, I have got to give you some credit on these videos. I just happened to stumble on them, and I've already watched several. You do a great job trimming the fat on these videos. No joke, you're a Grade A editor. Looking forward to seeing more of your content!

  8. Nice ramp. That will make life easier. If you put some sort of finish on it and throw some sand over it while the finish is still wet it will give you a nice grip when walking on it too.
