Wayne’s World Tabletop Hockey

Wayne's World Tabletop Hockey Garthmobile Design by Dave Delisle

I’ve been thinking about how it would be fun to have a mini 1 vs 1 tabletop hockey set, with a single shooter squaring off against a goalie. There was no interesting way to showcase that concept until I thought of Wayne’s World, specifically the scene where Wayne and Garth are playing street hockey.

Kevin Smith Tabletop Hockey

Here is a tabletop hockey set design that pays homage to the rooftop hockey scene from Clerks. The building facade is on both sides of the rink, the Quick Stop signs are score markers, and the players are decked out in Kevin Smith hockey jerseys.

The players should be wearing shorts and sneakers, so apologies for not being completely accurate here. All the View Askew characters, like Jay and Silent Bob, would be illustrated as players too.

If you look at center ice you’ll see they are using an orange street ball, but it is encased in a clear plastic puck (an idea for anyone who wants to make street hockey tabletops).

Like everyone else I am glad Kevin survived his health scare last week, here’s hoping he makes films well into his 80’s like Clint Eastwood.

Hidden Hockey Rink Stadium

I’m a fan of the NHL’s outdoor games, but I feel that the viewing experience for fans in lower seats must be somewhat poor, despite being closest to the rink. If only the rink was sunken into the ground! Well now that there are football stadiums with grass fields that slide outside, that is a possibility.

Karate Kid NHL Playoff Bracket

Here is a design that can translate to any sport with playoffs: the bracket from the background of the All Valley Tournament, seen in the original The Karate Kid. The above depicts the upcoming 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Go Flames Go.

Mini Budweiser Red Light

Budweiser’s Red Lights are awesome, I’m quite positive they are coveted by all hockey fans. I’ve yet to get one myself because I still use a dumbphone (the lights require an app), but one day, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

NHL ’94 Tabletop Hockey

I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too.

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Custom NHL Furniture by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team.
