Just for fun I decided to test out my new lathe duplicator attachment to turn a baseball bat. You could use Ash or something to make one but as I will never use this (we just don’t play baseball in the UK) I just used pine.

In this video I cover designing templates in Google Sketchup, as well as duplicator setup and turning.
I also left in a little blooper, but you will have to watch the video to find it.

*Not sure if the embedded player (above) is visible so here is a link to the video:
