A multi-centre turning of base ball bat that I made just for fun, today in the men’s shed. I took the idea from a friend but attaching it to the ball is my own additional. I’d like to share the fun with you.

Great looking bat, is that an offical Australian cricket ball? Glad to see you are still having fun and sharing it

Just a big kid at heart Sam & having fun as Kids do :: ))
You’ll have to stop hitting the ball so hard Sam then you might’nt get a “kink” in the bat ::))
can you hit a “home run” with this creation??

You can surely take a home run in just a swing with that baseball bat! Nice one!
