    If you want to keep it outdoors, use pressure treated 2x4. Build a cheese wedge shape and use 1/4" plywood or laminate for the ramp surface itself.

    If you're not handy, get yourself a pile of dirt...
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    A big cardboard box! Cut the sides to the curve you want, then duct tape a piece to the top. Cut another curved piece to support the middle. Here's a vid with a little advise on shape.

    Haha. That's exactly what I did. Two ramps for $3 just for the tape.
