The third piece to my son’s baseball furniture collection is a baseball home plate and baseball bat nightstand. Using quality plywood to make the plates to MLB specifications and three ash bats for the legs. I used a custom jig and table saw to cut the bats and drill press to make the appearance the bats are going through the plates. Paint, glue, screws and some stain. Just love it!

I’m not much of a baseball person, but I love this aesthetic and the lines. Nice work.

Thank you for the compliments. It was fun to build. The most rewarding part was to make the a bats appear to be floating through the plates.

Great job! Would look great next to a vintage pair of stadium seats.
