Draw a line from corner to corner on your 40-inch plywood and cut it in half with your circular saw so that you have two equal triangular pieces. You can use the straight edge to ensure your line is straight. These are the pages of your dog ramps for beds. Place the pages of your dog ramp so they rest on their 40-inch edges, parallel, 17 inches apart, so they hypotenuses line.
DIY small dog ramps for beds, position 5:17-inch boards perpendicularly between the ramp edges so their 7 ½-inch surfaces are flush with hypotenuses. Space them 1 inch apart. The screw through the ramp sides and the ends of the 17-inch discs. Use four screws for each board – two at each end. Set the last 17-inch board perpendicularly between the sides so it’s on the edge, and even with the 20-inch edges. Screw through the sides of the ramp and into the 17-inch board with four screws.
