Step 3: Step Two

  1. cut the cheap 1"x2" to around 2" chunks
  2. align the 4" pipe with the hole on the plywood
  3. with wood glue, use three 1"x2" chunks and secure them around the ABS with a brad nail gun or staples
  4. do this for all of the holes
  5. attach the 3" board to the bottom of the 2"x4" framecarefully, using 1 1/8" screws, secure the plywood to the 2"x4" frame

  6. cut six 2"x4" chunks slightly shorter than your ABS pipe and screw them in, in between your pipe. 
<p>Built these Memorial Weekend 2013. Made a few minor changes and added a night feature when I finished. Thanks for the easy to follow instructions. </p>
<p>How did you put in the lights? Where did you get them &amp; what kind of lights did you use?</p>
<p>love the lights... you put them on the outside of the PVC, or inside? can you take a picture and post it?</p>
<p>How did you add the lights if you don't mind me asking?</p>
Just added some relatively cheap LEDs on a whim. I ran them between the PVC and 1x4 on the bottom as close to the edge of the PVC as i could. I had the washer pinch the wire once, but otherwise they have done fine. I'm planning to redesign the light setup for this year. <br><br>http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004DYV2RE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
Thanks for the plans! The changes i made were- doing away with the ABS and then putting hinges on top board so i could open it up and grab my washers
<p>I'm having the hardest time finding 3&quot; washers. Where did y'all get them?? </p>
I bought mine from fastenal.com
And we use 3.5&quot; washers with the 4&quot; hole. Makes it a bit harder. Also, we offset the 3 holes. They start 4.5 inches from the end and span 11 inches from each other on a 40&quot;x14&quot; deck so we don't stand in a hole. There are a lot of diff plans. This is a nice one. I used 3/4 plywood and didn't add the abs plastic liners or the carpeting We've been playing this for years and to each his own I guess. The carpet does make it quieter I bet. :).
Just sand it and oil finish the top. You can spray undercoating to the inside if you want to deaden the sound.
Do you use 1/2&quot; or 3/4&quot; plywood for the top?
Very cool project!
