Hockey Lockers
« on: February 17, 2018, 02:08 AM »
Hi folks,

I've drank the koolaid last year and picked up a nice array of festools. What better excuse than to make stuff eh? Me and two of my boys play ice hockey and it can sure get cluttered with all the protective equipment for everyone. We had been using a wire rack for a couple years but over time it just became a place to just haphazardly pile on the gear. It became obvious that I needed to build a cabinet or shelf to house all the gear.

I decided on melamine as I had just recently finished some builtin cabinets and had no desire whatsoever to sand and paint. Also because I wanted the exterior surface to be hard, durable, and water resistant since there is going to be of moisture when hanging stinky gear out to dry.

Check out the build pictures and comments at:

Overall it was a great project that only took a few weekends. The toughest part was definitely getting the melamine sized down. Those panels are heavy!

Fantastic work! Must really get you in the mood when you suit up in the "locker room".  [big grin]

I agree - melamine just has so much going for it as a practical material. The build looks great as well - that shot after routing to the template and how little dust there was is awesome! Amazing that we can do these jobs indoors, huh? Great job and thanks for sharing.

 Those look awesome!  Did you make up the dimensions or did you get them off some plants somewhere?

I’ve been looking all over for some dimensions or plans.

No, these dimensions are tailored to the space where the cabinets were going to live. I spent some time measuring all my gear to ensure there was enough space between the various components. The profile was basically arbitrary. Based simply on looks rather than anything in particular. If I were to do it again, I'd probably make the bottom part stick out more so my kids can use it as a step to stash their helmets and gloves.

I was grinning from ear to ear at the amount of dust that got collected. The chip catcher was the mvp to make it so efficient.
