Ramps, Steps and Rails

Ramps, Steps and Rails

Ramps, steps, and rails are important things for homeowners and skateboarders alike to know how to make. At Bottom Level Tool Shop you can learn how to make these over a series of classes and be part of a small crew who’ll help neighbors in need.

During the class you’ll build small skate and home items for Tube and elsewhere. By taking the class, offered free in exchange for your help, we’ll supply wood and hardware needed so you can also take what you make home for your own mini skate park or maybe to help around your house or the house of a neighbor of your choosing.

This class requires the prerequeisite Shop Safety class offered in the morning before this class. Shop safety usually has a cost but this is waived, also, with your commitment to help with this summer community home repair project we’re piloting at Big Car Collaborative with support from INHP.
