I received an email from Gavin O. who wanted me to check out his website. Normally, I'm pretty skeptical of requests like this, but Gavin's email sounded interesting. Gavin wrote,
I stumbled upon your blog today and saw back in 2009 you showed a guy's custom table hockey game. I thought I'd share mine with you. I have been documenting the whole thing on this blog. There are also tons of others doing projects just like mine. Some do an even better job. I enjoyed your blog.Thanks, Gavin! I am interested in these custom table hockey ideas. It shows a great deal of creativity, do-it-yourself ability, and is a project that requires the ultimate attention to detail in recreating the hockey experience at home! In other words, if it's done well, someone's earning my respect!
Gavin is building the MTS Centre Lite - a miniature version of the Winnipeg Jets' arena complete with proper ice markings and board advertisements for table hockey! Honestly, this is a cool project, and his documentation on the project might get you started on a project like this!
The detail and the exhaustive hours put into this project are nearly complete, and Gavin's mini MTS Centre is looking awesome! I'm going to keep in touch with Gavin regarding this project. Once he's finished, I'll have him send some photos and we'll compare it with the real MTS Centre! I'm quite certain that this labour of love is something that will have a lot of people talking for a long, long time.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the table!
