Here’s my most recently completed project (and my first posting on Lumberjocks). I saw a beautiful piece of maple in the cast off bin at the local hardware store. Unfortunately it is so twisted and bent that I can only use it in small pieces.
I decided to make up a fish bat as the grand prize for the family fishing trip this year. You dont’ have to catch the biggest fish to win, just have everyone believe that you caught the biggest one.

That’s the best looking fish bat I’ve ever seen. I didn’t even know fish could play baseball.

Everyone needs a fishing tool this nice. If you have any of that wood left, try a fish rod handle. Dandy work.

I went deep sea fishing once and we caught a baracuda we wanted to keep. The deck hand was some kind of Norwegian/Sweede/Flemmish guy with a huge accent. After we landed it on the boat. He was yelling, “give me the fishing boot!!!. No one knew what the heck he was talking about and finally moves over and grabs the “fishing bat” used to knock the fish over the head to keep it from biting us.
