A piece of wood is split. Then it is sanded. They then take the blade and glue it on and let it dry. After that, they paint it the desired color. In some cases, the name of a player is put on it.
== == Modern hockey sticks are made from several types of materials, including wood. Wood is the traditional material, and a wood stick is the cheapest one. Made in two parts, the shaft and the blade, and joined together at the point where the shaft meets the blade, with a type of joint that is quite strong. The blade's length is regulated, as is the curvature of it. Metal shafts and now combined with wood blades, as are composite sticks with blades and shafts. The cost of these is much higher than wood . A pro quality composite stick is about $125 each with metal shaft and wood sticks being cheaper at $99 in Canada. Pro hockey players have their sticks made just for them by the stick companies, and when they get a shipment of 100 sticks, they will spend several days, working on each stick to get it to their satisfaction as to the curve and the taping on the blade and the shaft. They use sanders and grinders to get them "just right" then they are stored in the team's equipment locker. The team's equipment manager is responsible to make sure that each player has "enough sticks" for every game and he puts at least 5 sticks out for each player behind the player's bench where they are instantly available if the player breaks on on the ice. The metal shaft stick has more bendability than the wood one, so the player can get more "whip" effect when he shoots. The amount of curve and cup of the blade will give the shooter more "snap" on the wrist shot. The downside to a big curve in the blade is that it makes it much harder for the player to "receive" a hard pass. The puck will bounce off the curved blade more easily than on a straight blade. It is all a matter of personal choice for the player. Finally goal tenders do not use composite or metal sticks, only wood ones. They have found that wood has the best weight and feel for the special sticks that the goals use. The goalie has a stick that is wider and thicker than a regular hockey stick.
Wood hockey sticks were initially made using maple until the 1920s but as supplies diminished, yellow birch and ash become more common and by 1930 onward, ash was the preferred hardwood for hockey sticks. In the 1940s hockey stick manufactures began using layers of wood epoxied together and utilizing fiberglass lamination.
Today all hockey stick manufactures such as Bauer, CCM, GTS, STX and True produce their high end sticks using composite materials such as carbon fiber. These sticks are much lighter and provide more consistent performance.
Hockey sticks can be made of wood, composite materials, plastic, metal (in Ice Hockey only) or a combination of all.
Because if u made them out of metal they would be too heavy and out of plastic too weak but wood isn't to heavy but really strong.

Hockey sticks were originally made out of wood. But now a days Pro Hockey sticks are made of graphite woven from carbon. NHL players have their sticks custom made accoring to them and what makes them play better. Each player has a different way they like their sticks. The Sticks are made of graphite because they can easily bend when they're taking a shot on goal. Wood sticks can't bend.
Normally, they use composite instead of wood.
The vast majority of sticks are made with one (or a combination) of the following materials: wood, aluminum, fiberglass, graphite (carbon fiber), Kevlar and titanium.
