Its a wood working project of sorts, if you consider a wood bat, 6×48 belt sander, torch and a little imagination woodworking. I did this for a good friend of mine. Doug is about as serious a baseball fan as you will ever know, little league, high school state champ in IL, Div 1A pitcher, serious Cardinal fan, president of the local Sunday morning league and avid memorabilia collector. Sponsors a big wiffle ball tournament every year. He is a tall lanky lefty that could really bring the heat, still pitches on occasion. His office is decorated from floor to ceiling with all types of baseball gear, lots of them have a story behind them. Doug has a great sense of humor, loves to make people laugh, can brag/laugh at his one accomplishments so I think this will fit right in.

I wonder if this now makes me an artist? Nah, just an old woodwroker.

When I first saw the bat I was thinking it was for a big steroid power hitter. He hits the ball so hard it burns his bat. After reading about it I like your idea much better. Bring the heat and burn one right by. Awsome!
Your friend has got to love this.
