    Son and I broke a window casing in an intense game of hockey in the basement. Any ideas on how to repair or at least hide that hole better? Window company says its a full replacement.

    Some foam in a can, a little Bondo and black paint waytogo

    (That’s what I’d do)

    Epoxy wood filler. Sand and paint.

    Get a little stuffed chipmunk. Stuff its whole body into the cavity with only its head sticking out. Now you have a mascot for the next game.

    Once you repair it make sure you put up some chicken wire before the next game.

    That is NOT the IDO Solution. What you need is to ring the basement with a full on boards setup with plexi to the ceiling. Make sure the plexi can handle at least at 170 mph slapper and 6000 pounds of checking force in case Dustin Byfuglien stops by for a pickup game.

    Kidding aside I have been to a house in the west metro that had a full rink setup in the basement complete with artificial plastic “ice” that could be skated on. It was about 40 ft by 20 ft. The owner had made a serious attempt to have real ice but somehow sanity prevails sometimes even with tier 1 hockey parents.

    Do you have the broken out piece?
    If it is in 1 piece, glue a backer inside the vinyl frame then glue the piece to the backer.

    Cut a piece to fit out of balsa or pine glue in place flush… mix sawdust with some wood glue and fill in the edges, sand and paint the whole thing.

    Thanks for all the great ideas, I’m confident one of those will work out.
