Hornbean Baseball Bat
Making a baseball bat is fun. It’s a relatively straightforward woodturning project.
The first thing to do is to find a good blank of either Hard Maple or Northern Ash. The rough size should be approximately 76mm round and 900mm” long. The straighter and tighter the grain, the less chance it will break when you use it. Material that’s been graded for making bats is much better than what you find at the local hardwood store. You can find a number of good sources online. I’ve used Hornbean for this particular baseball bat.
