I recently picked up a very old Nok Hockey table at a yard sale that I would like to re-create in a more outdoor friendly fashion so it can be stored in a shed.

I was thinking about cedar for all of the pieces for its moisture resistance and light weight (and cost!) but don’t know what to use for the actual playing surface. The one I have now uses particle board but that won’t last long outdoors at all… it needs to be a relatively lightweight, smooth surface.

Any ideas?

I made one of these years ago and it’s still useful! I used 1/4” hardboard for the playing surface. Works great. wood puck slides with ease.
Fun game and reminiscent of 1960’s summer school programs!
