I need a temporary wheelchair ramp to allow an occasionally visiting niece
to get in my slightly raised cottage.I saw one at harbor Freight which
requires 3/4" thick plywood..will need 36" width.I have no truck to carry
such but do have lots of 1/2" board (it is placed on the walls of buildings
and is fragments of wood rather than solid sheets) 20 inches wide...can I
glue the 1/2" together to equal an inch thick?
Is there a center support, I presume? How heavy is the chair/occupant?
If this were a battery-powered chair, for example, I'd be at least a
little concerned even w/ the double layer. OSB isn't very strong and
while it would likely hold, the risk if it doesn't is excessive, imo.
OTOH, if she's a tiny little thing and it's a manual chair, two layers
w/ a center support screwed together securely would undoubtedly be
sufficient for a temporary "make-do"...
