Me and My dad built this launch ramp today it took about 1 and a half hours in total to build. We just used plywood we had leftover from other stuff and recycled boards for the slats. the ramp is 3 feet high, and 7 feet long and like 28 CM wide. It has a perfect curve in it and I should be testing it either tommorow or on tuesday because I need to move it and build some kind of a landing. It is going to be used for a step up, Step down I think it should work fine. What do you guys think?
Here are the Pics:

usual method is to draw the curve onto the plywood with a string and pencil,and then cut with an electric jigsaw whilst carefully following the pencil line, you can always smooth it out a little with a rasp if you are cack handed with the jigsaw Wink

Niiiice. me and my buddy built a Quarter similar to that. Sawzall works amazing for cutting those nice curves

Pretty noice.
I'm making a 4 foot jump like that.. Probably near a 70* angle off the lip. I still need plywood though. I can't wait untill I've finished it.. But It'll be killer solid.
