Here is a bat I made tonight for Scrappys_Squirt It is her birthday today! (god I am getting old) haha
She has taken to walking around the neighborhood as part of her excersize program. There are a couple of dogs running loose occassionally and any time a women is out and about she should have something to protect herself with. (she is mean enough to use it also) hahaha (except on a dog, won’t hit them but will let them bite it instead of her)
It is 14 inch long and 2 1/2 inch at the big end. Weighs about 5 pounds so heavy enough to do the trick and light enough to carry along. Eucalyptus branch.
Sanded to 240 grit. Did not want it real smooth to make it hard to hold onto. No finish. Want it to age and color naturally from being handled.
Nice to do a quick project and have it turn out quick. The last “Quick” thing I did took 4 hours. haha this only took 1 hour start to no finish.
Please let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking.
