    I made it myself, but the hardware store would give it to me cheaper if they cut off what I didn't need.
    My box is 75" long, 25" wide, and 7 3/4" tall

    one 3/4" sheet of ply wood 75"x25"
    two 3/4" peices of ply wood 75"x7"
    two 3/4" peices of ply wood 22 1/2"x 7"
    four 2x4's 22" long
    Some angle iron that will wrap around the top (ask a welder to put it together for you) 1 1/2"x 1/8" Also ask him to drill holes. Assemble the box with the big peice on top, medium peice on the sides, and the small peices in between both the big peices on the end with the 2x4s along the inside paint it whatever color you want all around and on the inside. Or use stain. When you get the angle iron screw it in. To be flush you can get a peice of masonite by about 72 1/2" x 22 1/4" (about, measure for yourself first, the welders may make it different.)

    theres a picture of the inside. Use screws not nails.

    Thumbs up I made/bought a rail!

    You can go to a custom metal shop (common in HK) with a plan/design for a rail.
    Just get all the measurments down and find the material you want to use, the guys will help you custom make one in a week or so. For a reasonble price and quality.
    The rail I got was really good, just like one you would find in a park or buy from a skate seller! You can have round ones or flat ones, of all shape and sizes, REALLY COOOL!

    I don't have any ramps, but my friend who I hang out with all the time has some really small stuff.

    Hes got this ghetto box, made out of 2X4s and stuff, with no coping or anything.

    And this little rail, about three feet long.

    He's also got a small little ramp... it's extremely small.. Not too much bigger than flatground.

    But, we add them all together, and make a decent sized ramp. we'll grab the box, and set it on top of this bucket, and put the rail under it so it wont fall over. And we'll take the small kicker, and set it at the bottom that way we can get onto the box. Then, we just get two road signs, and set them up over the cracks, and we're golden!

    I wish I had a cement slab like that in my back yard, if I were you, I would look into moving your quarter pipes, and building a mini on the grass, and taking advantage of the cement area you have to make a street course.

    so move the pipes and build a mini in the grass
    well i dont have the wood at my house, all the wood is at my gpa's and im not allowed to build anything else so i just have to work with what i have

    but i think i will move the first quarterpipe in the grass to save some space and even connect it with my box

    I've only spent like 700$ on wood and shit.

    As for him, hes spent 5,000$ plus...

    If its at my house, I pay, he helps build. At his house, he pays, I help build...

    I just turned 15 but I've had this little thing called a J-O-B.
