If anyone is searching for the right gift to make for someone, perhaps a hand made baseball bat is the answer.
At rockler you can buy a baseball bat “second”. In theory, these are bats what were not completed by a manufacturer because of some defect. I took a chance and bought one. Other than the fact that it still needed some turning, sanding and finishing work, I could see no defect in the bat.
I doubt that I could by a adequate blank of maple for much less than their asking price and they are doing free delivery currently.
This is nothing more than an idea I want to share with my LJ friends.
