For purposes of this article, I am going to assume that you do not have a hydraulic lift in your garage. 

Build two of these ramps using 2 X 8's.  I quickly learned that when it comes to lumber, two inches really meant 1 1/2 inches actual thickness.  Only in America.  So the total lift for the three boards as shown is only 4 1/2 inches, but that makes the difference in being able to get a jack under the front center of the car.  

The step-up length shown by the yellow arrow  is one foot long.  The top board is also one foot in length.  Any shorter and the ramp will have trouble fitting under the front fascia. 

The bottom board is a little less than four feet long.  I like to make a short step-down after the top board so if the car rolls too far forward the car does not instantly drop back to ground level.    

In my usual obsessive fashion, I used screws and Elmer's glue to hold the board together, but a few nails would also do the trick.  I didn't want any nails ever working their way loose and puncturing my tires.

A handle on the outside of the ramps makes carrying and moving them around a lot easier. Center the handles over the balance point of the ramps. 

The handles create a right and left ramp, since it would not make much sense to have the handles on the inside edge, under the car.
