My son, who is a big Flyers fan, has been playing ice hockey since he was four. Prior to that he was roller blading around the house. He started at 2 1/2.
That’s his obsession. He just turned fourteen, stands 6’ tall, weighs 210 pounds. He’s certain he’ll play for the Flyers.
So when he was 10 and needed a bed, it seemed fitting to make him something with the theme of hockey.
My boss, I mean my wife helped me design something, and also did the paint work. The handle to the doors and drawers are hockey pucks.
While it’s a little different than our normal work, I thought I’d post it. It’s constructed from shop grade maple plywood. The drawers are 1/2” maple apple ply, which is similar to baltic birch, but much smoother. It comes in standard sized sheets, unlike baltic birch. A great product for cabinet drawers.
It’s a full size bed, but he’s beginning to out grow it.
