This is a baseball-themed coat rack I was asked to make for a charity auction to be held later this month. Something appropriate for a boy’s room. Slicing the baseball bat was somewhat of a challenge. I made a jib to support it and made a couple of passes over the table saw to make some alignment grooves then carefully ran it through the band saw to finish the cut, followed by some planing to smooth it out. (wish I had a jointer) Base is just some red oak with Min-Wax finish followed by some paste wax. Drilled and counter-bored 6 holes spaced for mounting to studs.
