  1. Bat Holder made by aspiring woodworker!

    My son, both a huge baseball fan and aspiring woodworker, has found a way to combine two things he enjoys. We grooved the dowels so the bat would rest nicely in place. I also tried using my key hole router bit to cut the slots on the back to easily hang on the wall. This method is super easy...
  2. High School Projects made by my Grandnephew!

    One of my sister's Grandsons took Woodworking at his high school this year. He made some real nice things, & I couldn't let this chance go by, of showing off what he made to all of you fellow Lumberjocks. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a regulation...
  3. Groomsmen Gifts Display Shelf

    Custom Display shelf for Groomsmen gifts collection. Of my good friends i am the last to remain a bachelor. This means we all have a nice collection of groomsmen's gifts we have collected from each other. My buddy Joe wanted a way to store and display them in his office. This simple bat shelf...
  4. Ash Baseball Bat

    Made this from Ash turned on a mini lathe. I didn't purchase a billet, but just got a few pieces of three inch thick boards and ripped them down. It is for a friend of my son's for his birthday. Have made a few more from Maple, but my son and his friends seem to prefer Ash. I finished it...
  5. Low-Tech Home Security System

    A friend of mine asked me for help setting up an inexpensive security system for his home so I made this for him. I liked it, so I made one for myself too (pic #2).
  6. Baby Cradle

    I made this cradle for my niece It was inspired from the many cradles I looked at here on LJ's . Thanks to all of you fellow LJ's. The wood is oak and the finish is rub on Gel (Prairie Wheat) I delivered it to her last week just in the time the baby was born that evening.
  7. Maple Baseball Bat

    This summer I bought some maple baseball bat blanks for pretty cheap from a guy in Pennsylvania who acquired them as factory rejects. I've used them to make a rolling pin, a lamp and a few other things but one of my coworkers asked if I could make him a bat. Since the switch blew on our DW735...
  8. Wonder Bat

    This is a a bat I turned for my brother-in-law from ash. It is 32" long and has a 2-5/8" barrel. My Brother-in-law is a huge Simpsons fan and plays in a men's baseball league. I mentioned turning a bat for him - and right off the bat (pardon the pun) he says, you mean a wonder bat? Apparently...
  9. Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT

    Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT I made this bat as a birthday present for my (back then) nine years old elder son. We have no tradition of playing baseball here, but my son was exposed to it at school, and wished he had one. The wood is pine offcuts, leftovers from commerially availabe...
  10. Baseball Bat Rack

    I made this for my brothers autographed baseball bat collection. I think it made from poplar and pine.
  11. Reclaimed/recycled baseball bat stand/table

    This is an old baseball bat that i tried to turn into a small stand or table. On the top is a picture that i transfered on to of the 1950's Cincinnati Reds logo.
  12. Pallet Wood - Baseball Bat Kids Shelf

    My uncle bought a cheap baseball bat shelf made out of particle board at a flea market and asked me to make two for my cousins. He had me use pallet wood to make the shelves and asked to make the shelves longer than the original one he bought. I made one blue and one red and I thought they came...
  13. Baseball Bat Bench

    A bench made of used baseball bats. Seat cushions are actual bases. This is a Christmas surprise for some friends of ours. Nate had a bunch of bats that were mostly damaged or split from over the years he had been saving. I think his wife was sick of looking at them, so she commissioned me...
  14. Saw Benches

    I needed a couple of saw benches for my GROP, so I put a together two of different designs. They are both simple, plain and sturdy - no nails or screws, just glue, dado joints, and oak dowels. One is an old V-notch pattern that I have seen 1000 times and the other is combination bench/tool tote...
  15. First Baseball Bat

    This is my first baseball bat on the lathe. It was a lot of fun to make. I'm actually surprised it turned out this good for my first one. I sanded it up to 600 grit. It is smoother than a baby's butt. It is made of walnut - which I know is not typically what bats are made of (maple, ash, or...
  16. Making a Baseball Bat with the Lathe Duplicator

    Just for fun I decided to test out my new lathe duplicator attachment to turn a baseball bat. You could use Ash or something to make one but as I will never use this (we just don't play baseball in the UK) I just used pine. In this video I cover designing templates in Google Sketchup, as well...
  17. Some turning projects...

    The first one: a mallet made out of purpleheart and hard maple. The second: Some new handles for two rasps of Smoked Oak. And the third: a baseball batt made out of Hornbean. All of the projects are finished with a couple of layers Danish Oil. Greetings!
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I once had a device that I could plug into an outlet and then plug an appliance into it. This would track and display, (like an old type car odometer), the amount of hours the appliance/tool had been running or used. I want to search for one on the net but I don't know what to call it. I get...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi everyone, I just recently broke my favorite wooden baseball bat from my childhood and figured out a great way to try out my new lathe… So I turned a smaller bat out of the broken one for my boys. But now I don't know how I should finish it. I sanded it while it was on the lathe and put...
  20. Blogs
    Found a way I like to cut straight-end, non-through rip and crosscuts in plywood This is probably a common technique, with a name, but it only occurred to me today. I gave it a shot, and it worked out really well. I'm going to use it from now on for non-through cuts, and by that, I mean rips...
