Baseball bat made of oak wood

Today I show you the production of a baseball bat made of oak wood.
First I turned the wood with the cross support and then turned it by hand into the form of a baseball bat. After grinding I blackened the wood with iron acid (dissolved fine steel wool in 60% acetic acid and then filtered).


I hope you enjoy it

Kind Greetings
Roger

I didn't know they played Baseball in Germany… I thought Football (soccer) was your pastime sport.

Bats are made of ash or maple. If anyone has the opportunity, visit the Hillerich & Bradsby plant in Louisville, Kentucky. Watch Louisville Slugger bats being make, pose with a star's bat, order a custom bat. If you order a bat, do it before the tour to save time when you leave; bat should be ready.

A diamond is how coal reacts under pressure.

There was a small baseball bat operation near Lancaster PA back in the late 1950's and early 1960's. My father got a bat from the guy for my 10th birthday. It was a 37 inch bat. I eventually grew into that bat and could hit fairly well with it,. Played in a grad school league when down in Miami and the other teams went nuts over the length of the bat. The following season, the max length was 36. Darn if I can remember the name of the outfit but the name was branded on the bat, same as a slugger was branded. I heard somewhere that longer bats are used to play Mush ball.
