Well, today I decided to make a bat rack for my room. My dad and I had some cherry left over from when we did the bookshelves in his study and I decided it was time to put it to good use. The part for the bat to slide into is 1” wide and there are 4” between each hole for lack of a better word. The distance between the last hole and the end is aproximately 3 1/2”. The piece that connects the bottom to the top was a 8 1/4” square, you can cut it into whatever shape you want. I used a table saw, compound miter saw, scroll saw, drill, saw, a 12” square, a tape measure, glue, and a pencil, o and my knife :). All together it took me about a hour and a half to make the whole thing. It was a fun little project and now I have a place to put my old bats in my room.
