« Part 2: apron and legs Part 3 of Hockey Stick Bedside Table series Part 4: Final Product »

Built a drawer to fit the opening in the table. Nothing fancy, just some plywood left over from some other project. Since I was using hockey sticks for the front, I made it shorter by their thickness so when the drawer is closed it fits flush with the table opening. I added a handle to allow easy opening and a rotational hockey stick piece in the back to prevent the drawer from falling out if pulled all the way. Just rotate the stick to install and it rotates vertical for interfearance on the table unless rotated again for removal. Simple but effective. I also went with grooves for drawer slides made from hardwood. Trimmed for a slight slip fit, they hold the drawer level when slid open and it works great.

ha! Now isn’t that little sticky-poo at the back the most brilliant thing… swivel!! Who’da thought.

continue to love it.

(And I asked Rick about the “Hespeler” stick—since he was born/raised in Hespeler Ontario. It seems that many major players have come from Hespeler and they used to have a “Hespeler Hockey Stick” factory there. (now the company is under another name. And now I know. )

he said that his whole -in-law family worked there at one point or another in their lives.
But, no sticks.

My son is all grown up and living across the country. The hockey stick table wouldn’t mean quite the same thing to him now as it would have when he was a teenager.
