How do you build a proper table top?

Is there some dimension or angles that go into the design of a table top?
I was at copper harbor in Michigan and was intimidated and intrigued by a trail that had about 30 table tops in a row.
I have access to a nice patch of land with a good run up and would like to build one so I can learn a new skill.
Also if someone could point me in the right direction for proper technique it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Make the launch ramp slightly longer than the wheel base of your bike. The table can be 7 to 9 feet for starters. The landing ramp should be about 50% longer than the wheel base of your bike. Keep the ramp angles mild to start off with. Steepen the launch ramp as you get comfortable with the jumps.
