NOTE: Does not include the necessary lumber. The information provided on this page assumes the use of 2" x 12" x 10' lumber which is widely considered the most cost effective method of attaining a functional sheet of ice. 2" by 12"'s require fewer Iron Sleek brackets because of their rigidity and will require fewer cuts, if any.
Another common choice is 3/4" plywood which is a better choice for rinks that have a long section of very high water and for rinkers who want more of an enclosure feel. Although plywood will cost a bit more money for the boards and will require more Iron Sleek brackets because it lacks rigidity, it is still well worth it. Some other benefits of Plywood over 2" by 12" lumber is for stacking and storage on the off season and it is lighter to handle.
On the contrary, plywood requires a little extra work, money, and skill. Plywood boards come in 4’ by 8’ sheets. The most common practice is to rip them in half with a circular saw and to support the boards minimally with an Iron Sleek bracket at the seams and every 4 feet. In addition, it is critical to bind the tops with Iron Sleek Mending Channel at all seams. The good news is that the local lumberyard may rip the plywood for you. Ripping plywood is not as easy as it seems. Ask someone skilled for help or ask the lumber store to do it for you. Plywood has very sharp corners so BE SURE TO USE IRON SLEEK BASE COVE to protect the bottom of your liner. Base Cove is truly a rink saver.
