Grandkids Baseball Bat 2013 – When my son was a kid we made a baseball bat and when I cleaned up my lathe a few months back I promised that I would let my grandsons repeat the task this summer. I know I paid too much but I ordered a baseball stock from Rockler. I selected “ash” and when the kids were spending the day with us we got started. Cutting the stock down to diameter first, then setting the length. They really did most of the work, but I help cleaning up the rough portions. I don’t know who enjoyed it the most them or me or my wife watching. I know I should have made two, one for each one of them, but we only made one and put both of their names on the bat. But I did promise we would make another one next summer.
