Paint and secure the channels to the plywood

Next, you can paint/finish your plywood back, we painted ours red(optional). Then, create your pattern for the run. You can use ours as a template or make your own. Secure the channels & catch basin to the plywood. We used a combination of glue for some & nails/screws (from the back) for others. This allowed us to make adjustments for ball speed. Hang on the wall and enjoy.
