I happened to be in the local Sports Authority yesterday for some hockey pucks and I saw these little novelty bats on sale, they are solid, straight grained clear ash. I have several old slicks that need handles as well as some larger (2”) chisels that could wear a large handle with ease.
The little bats are 16” and cute as can be, at $2.00 each they are worth that for the wood content alone, ash is one of the harder to find woods around here, especially nice dry stock.
Here is what I was thinking of turning some of the little bats into, I am sure the pictures of “Typically Handled Tools” will explain my intentions…
A $2.00 Sports Authority “16” Novelty Ash Bat” wanting to be a tool handle for cheap!
What do you think?
