Gotta be a use. A lathe person would probably like it more.

very expensive to make, my son is making bats, because you have to use 12 quarter lumber, no glue ups allowed. i think they would be very good barbecue wood.

Good for any spindles. Railings, chairs, wheels, lots of uses.

Fresh from the lathe , yet he lost his storage….does that mean the wife told him NO MORE !!
Depending on what they got rejected for , perhaps a bunch of salt and pepper grinders could be made.
Or , a very short fence…..

That looks like a LOT of bats and he says ya gotta take ALL of them! All the above ideas are good ones but not something I need.

Stool legs for a baseball-themed room; shop stool legs; headboard for a baseball-themed bed. I could use a few of them, but certainly not 400.

I would guess that there’s several of each size. Maybe make the barrels into lamp posts. Supposed to be solid wood. Slice them up for other projects. With your box-making skills I bet you could incorporate them somehow.
