Hey Bob – I have been planning to make a bat for a few months now. I have the lathe, the lathe stand, and soon the chisels. I also have an actual Ash blank from Lousivile Slugger. Any practice tips before i actually use the ash blank? Are there good “practice” woods to try first?

OL, try 2 glued up 2×4’s for practice. Prepare to get the sizes close, since you get a lot of chatter, I dial it in to final size with 100 grit sandpaper.
