This baseball bat is made of black walnut. I glued up a lot of pieces to make the blank. The bat was turned on my Legacy CNC. It is 52 inches long, weighs almost 15 pounds, and the barrel has the 5 inch diameter. Why would anybody make such a thing? I have no idea! Actually I did it to see if I could, and I can. I’ll stick it on my webpage and see if it’s a seller. I’m going to keep this one but I may have some baseball fans out there that want one too. It would make a good conversation piece to have in the corner of the living room, assuming you’re a bachelor or your wife really likes baseball too! I have a feeling mine will never make it to the living room, so I’ll have to keep it in the office at my shop.
