1)Measure and mark a 72-inches-wide by 42-inches-high square on the plywood. This is the National
Basketball Association's regulation size for a backboard.


2)Cut the square out of the plywood using the table saw. Have a friend help you stabilize the plywood while
you push it through the saw. Remember to be extremely careful when operating a table saw.


3)Measure and mark a 24-inches-wide by 18-inches-high square one the cut plywood. The square should be
24 inches from the left and right side of the plywood, 18 inches from the top of the plywood, and 6 inches
from the bottom of the plywood.


4)Paint the lines of the square you marked on the plywood. This is the shooters box which is used as a guide
for bank shots. The lines should be about two inches thick.


5)Cover the entirety of the plywood with a waterproof sealant. You now have a regulation-size backboard
that should last for many games.
