Slide of the Month- Basketball


January 2023

Time to make: 1 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Wayne Mason

January reminds me of days past when in high school gym class it was basketball time. The good glass hoops were raised and the practice hoops were lowered so I saw this time of hoop almost every day. 

Made from a thin piece of hobbyist plywood painted white. Ring of the hoop is made from a thing piece of wire and a couple of holes were drilled into the plywood to hold the wire. Before attaching the wires, I threaded some netting I recycled from a bag of vegetables (onions I think). The wires were then passed through the holes and one wire was bent 90 degrees upwards and the other 90 degrees downward. I then glued the wires to the back of the board. The "targeting" rectangle was done using waterslide paper. A couple of coats of poly finish it off
