Présentation de l'éditeur

From the days when proto-humans lashed animal jawbones to sticks and whacked wildebeest-poop slapshots in Olduvai Arena to today’s super-high-tech computer-assisted extravaganzas, one by-product of the hockey game has gone unnoticed and untapped. Until now . . . In 50 Things to Make with a Broken Hockey Stick, Peter Manchester transforms the agony of a fractured stick into the thrill of creation. Instructions and explicit cartoons show woodworkers of all abilities how to fashion items for outdoors, items for indoors, and items without any purpose at all. No basement artiste will ever throw away a broken hockey stick again. The finished projects will delight friends and win the respect of detractors, even those in the maker’s own household. Using broken hockey sticks as tomato stakes is elementary compared with crafting a Walking Stick or a Piñata Stick. But Manchester goes far beyond making a stick out of a stick; his inventions encompass the full potential of this free and almost infinite resource. Even in this age of miracle materials, ordinary recreational hockey sticks are a tough, flexible composite of resin and wood, and the broken pieces are just too good to throw away. Truly practical designs include a modern Travois, a springy, long-range Catapult, and a Toilet Paper Holder for the well-appointed fishing camp. Science fair projects leap from the pages of 50 Things to Make with a Broken Hockey Stick: a Wind Vane, a combination Sun Dial and Snow Depth Gauge, and a Geodesic Dome that requires plenty of duct tape. Accessories for the home include a Curtain Rod for the bedroom of a hockey-crazed kid and a Lamp that really works. Fathers and children can bond as they manufacture gifts and sporting goods: a Pot Rack, a Wind Sail, an Ice Croquet Set, and a Bathroom Occupancy Designator. The book’s pièce de résistance is the Mock Moose, a trophy made from a skate and at least four stick blades.

I didn't stop laughing. Manchester has captured the true spirit of the great land of the north with this incredibly funny, belly bursting and gut wrenching account of the one implement that truly unites all Canadians into one people. Though it also has significance and great meaning and laughter to share with those folks down below the 49 th, you'll be yucking it up long after boxing day.

I bought this book because I have a collection of unused and broken hockey sticks that I wanted to turn into a useful tool or cool decoration. I've seen a few ideas from the different ice rinks I've visited, but I wanted more options... and I couldn't think of something original.

This book is aim for those who love being crafty and resourceful. I would recommend it for those who seem to accumulate more sticks than they can use, or simply want to add a hockey theme to a room. The projects range in difficulty and the number of sticks required.

I also see this as a good silent auction item (at hockey tournaments) or a gift for a hockey player.

Pros and Cons:
+ The author puts himself in the book: This is not a book full of blueprints and detailed engineering, he explains each craft like a teacher would to a student... and he even adds humor to it.
+ Pictures are hand drawings: It adds to the handy-man, crafty feel. And it makes the book more "personal" (for lack of a better word) instead of being perfect and precise.
- If there was anything I'd improve to this book, it'd be the number of "things". Don't get me wrong, 50 is a lot of projects to explain and write about; but I ALMOST felt I was done with the book when I skimmed through it for ideas. BUT in combining those 50 ideas with what I have seen, I was able to brainstorm more projects. I know there can be an expansion, but encouraging creativity is what the book is meant to do, and it did just that.

I highly recommend this book. If you're like me, crafty and love to play hockey, you'll want this book in your collection. I don't regret my purchase one bit. I look forward to constructing some of the projects listed in this book.
