As a hockey player and sports fan, I have always loved the sports aesthetic. Whether you consider it to be sports bar-like or a man cave, I have Colorado Buffaloes, Green Bay Packers, and Wisconsin Badgers logos all over my walls. However, I do not have any sports-related furniture. How cool would it be to have a piece of furniture to go with all the other sports stuff in my apartment!? That was my thinking when I stumbled across the following images.
Originally I was thinking I would make my very own hockey stick. I would use some pretty, lightweight wood and carve a custom shaft and blade that would fit me perfectly. I started to Google “Homemade Hockey Stick,” but what I found sparked a new inspiration
The limiting factor will be the number of hockey sticks I can salvage this week and weekend from the CU Rec Center ice rink. We have three club men’s games (CU vs Arizona and Arizona State Thursday through Saturday) and three club women’s games (CU vs Minnesota and CSU Saturday through Monday), plus the rink has already offered to donate a few broken sticks. My number one design is shown in the following sketch:
Depending on the dimensions of this side table, I would need anywhere from 6 to 28 hockey sticks. It also depends on how much I can salvage off any given hockey stick.
