A hockey stick with the blade still attached works just fine, with one small adjustment. Most sticks have a slight corner at the heel that must be sawn or sanded off, forming a smooth curve from shaft to blade. Two sticks of the same model and length, one right-handed and one left, are ideal. Ultimately, this luge will require a whole hockey team’s supply of busted sticks. Construction will be easiest if you begin with the sides. Cut two pieces (A) the length of the seat and five pieces (B) about 6" long for each side.

Cut two canvas pieces wide and long enough to make a comfortable sling for the seat and back, allowing extra length for folding the edges over the frame. Staple the fabric securely across the frame by bringing it to the inside, using lots of 3/8" staples. Hinge the back and seat together (hinges should be salt resistant — brass is good), and finish the project off by securely attaching a strip of nylon webbing to each side for stability. The bracing is important, as the twists, shifts, and stretches of beach lounging can put a lot of stress on a chair.

Let it harden. While it is setting, clean up. Don’t be a duffus and pour left-over plaster down the drain. I did this as a kid, and my dad’s exclamations still echo in the stratosphere. After a couple of hours, the plaster should be set. Take the box apart, pull the clay from the plaster, and clean the remaining bits out of the cracks. These concave feet are your molds. Brush them with liquid soap and fill them with silicone caulk. Use a putty knife to get the silicone as flat as possible. Silicone may take 24 hours to set, and it is quite stinky.
