How to build a half pipe
The half pipe my boyfriend Jarrod and I built last summer (I know it’s not really a craft thing, but o well )
It’s pretty easy to put together and I didn’t go in to a lot of detail for you but there ‘s a lot of good instructions out there on the net.

    -First you should decide what angle of transition you want

After that’s all done you’ll make the bottom box (sorry there’s no picture of it) Cut three pieces of 2x4 about (two for the sides and one for the middle of the box) Cut out smaller pieces of 2x4 going vertical to fit between the sides and middle pieces. ( it will look like a wall when done) Lay the one or more Particle boards the long way
