Portable Wheelchair Ramp

Requested Project

Design and build a portable ramp such that Delene Myers can get her father in and out of her house.
The ramp must be such that it can be stored when not needed.

Design Notes

The design is such that a 8 inch wide 1/2 inch thick plywood board is mounted between two wooden rails (a 2 X 6 split in 1/2, leaving 2.687 high boards X 8 foot long boards).  Two of these ramps need to be built.  The finished ramp needs to be 8 feet long.

RCRV designer is John McDonough, and was requested by RCRV, Phyllis Brooks. The project was begun May 2, 2004 and completed May 2, 2004.
