"Hi John You can use a staple gun like the one offered by Arrow Fastener....the T50 model with 3/8" staples is the one I've been using. Use anything similar and just make sure that the staples are not longer than the thickness of your wood."

"Can you add the 4 x 8 plywood sheets on the outside perimeter of your rink? That way the liner would be sandwiched in between the 2x6 boards and the plywood.  Are you wanting to put up the 4x8 sheets all the way around the rink?"
