I made this bed for my son for his 1st real bed. The bats are ash. The bed frame is alder with a cherry stain.

That’s a really great idea—very clever. It looks great! Did you lathe all those bats, too?

Art,

This is a very imaginative idea. The pegged tenons and contrast in the woods add nice details to the bed. Having been involved in youth baseball at all levels, but primarily in Little League. for nearly 20 years this project is something that most young players would love to have.

Thanks for the post.

Very neat project, your son’s gonna really appreciate it when he gets old enough, or maybe now. Looks like a lot of lathe work. Very cool. mike

I’ve been looking for a baseball bat bed for my son. Yours is the finest one I have seen. Would you be interested in recreating it and selling me one?
