Step 5: Create the First Net Stand
The first part is making a small mark for where to drill. That mark should be right above the other hole. You may want to look at the pictures to figure out the position. Then you have to drill a 1/2" hole there. Only drill the hole about 0.75" deep...Not all the way through.
Next, dry-fit one of the dowels. If it doesn't fit perfectly, you need to go back to the belt sander and sand more off. It should fit in there, but not move too freely.
Once you have it dry-fit, you can take some wood glue and glue it in there.
You are now done the first net stand. Great work.
