Hockey Stick Dresseer

I built this dressser for my son who obviously plays hockey..I ripped old hockey sticks in half and fastened them to each side. The main componets of the dresser are alder with baltic birch drawers with paduak slides that I made. The drawer boxes are baltic birch with rabbited joints that are dowled with the miller doweling system…awesome and strong.

The slides are made of paduak which are hard but I found works well with its natural oil content in the wood.

The finish is 3 coats of handed rubbed tung oil…which has remained durable.

Thanks For Looking!!!

Nice idea. Each one has a memory attached to it, I’ll bet.

Love it
My son keeps accumulating broken sticks from the rink
Sticks can be used to make a shelf for trophies or a chair or picture frames …it goes on and on
If I may suggest some custom drawer pulls for your dresser, have a look at this project
