A bench made of used baseball bats. Seat cushions are actual bases. This is a Christmas surprise for some friends of ours. Nate had a bunch of bats that were mostly damaged or split from over the years he had been saving. I think his wife was sick of looking at them, so she commissioned me to make her something useful out of them.
I would love to take credit for the design, but it’s pretty much a copy of one I saw on the net.
Held together with mostly 3/8” carriage bolts, and a few screws. The back is all held together with a long piece of all thread.
This was a challenging project, it was hard to measure and mark anything. It was also hard to clamp and drill anything. Ended up just holding bats in the position that looked good, drilling, and hoping for the best. I’m pretty happy with how it came out, I think Nate is really gonna like it.
Thanks for checking it out.
