History of the Hockey Stick
In the book, Manchester transforms typical busted-up hockey sticks into useful pieces of art. He goes far beyond the expectations of making a simple walking stick, however. Every turn of the page is a new invention that shows the full possibility of a broken hockey stick.
I was intrigued by that and I just started thinking about things you can make with those and it went from there. His creations include curtain rods, pot racks, a toilet paper holder and even a catapult.
The first piece of hockey-inspired art Manchester made was a mock moose- head trophy. For the time that I lived in Connecticut, there was a pond that would freeze behind our house and we would go down and play hockey there, but by no means did we have the competency that other kids have in Canada just because they skate so much more. Using broken hockey sticks as tomato stakes is elementary compared with crafting a Walking Stick or a Pi?
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.
50 Things to Make with a Broken Hockey Stick
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.
