A little over a year ago while scaning the net for wood working info I came across something about making a mallet from a baseball bat. All I remember is to cut 12 inches off each end. So, I can’t give credit where credit is due. I cut thebat into three pieces and then drilled a hole in the big end cut with a forestner bit. Sanded the handle end to fit the hole. The middle piece I rotated on the belt sander till medium rare.for the handle. Lastly, I added hanger uppers.

I will definitely be stealing this idea. Very cool!

Jay, love the write-up and most agree with Monte. As a matter of fact I was just looking over the spring trainig schedule here in Florida and since I live where the Wash Nat’ls train – I was planing out the games to attend.

Call me stupid but what do you use these for. I have wooden mallets, but mine looks like a hammer.
