Step 1

Cut the main post to desired height.

The smaller youth size is about 56" - this gives room to grow into.

For my daughter, I cut the post to 60" - this gave her a little more room to hang jerseys on the back.

For a taller adult with longer gear, 66" is recommended.

Carefully attach the main post to one of the 24" long 2x4s with two screws.  Make sure the post the square (90 degrees) to the base, and is flush to the bottom.

Step 2

Repeat for other side of post.  Make sure the two 2x4s @ 24" are lined up.

Step 3

Add the end pieces, with 3" on each side as shown.  2 screws per joint.

Step 4

Add the remaining 24" long 2x4s.

Make sure it sits flat to the ground and does not rock.

Step 5

Add the 1x3s or hockey sticks.

Customize with hooks.

I did hooks on front and back.

Long past the time when my kids fenced. This is brilliant. I like that it is not a fixed structure and can be moved from dorm room back home or abodes. Just the gift for my Christmas list for nephews and nieces. Maybe sports moms might want build a few as a fund raiser? Thanks for the post. 7th generation woodworker
