    Now, take a hacksaw and score the spoons and the steel tubing where they will attach. Next we took SteelStik and adhered the spoons.

    Set up the brackets and mark where you would like the bolts to go… We did 4 on each side between each bar.

    We then set it up and trimmed the brackets. We had a coffee sack lying around that we thought would make for a nice cover to the board.
