  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. Base ball loft | Custom

    This was a project that we finished and delivered on Christmas eve. It is a baseball loft. It is based off my baseball bed that I normally build with the customizable headboard. This is real similar to the baseball loft I built last August. Here are some of the changes I made to this one. I...
  3. Is it a Bed or Locker | Red Sox Murphy Bed

    This was a fun one to build. This is a Murphy Bed that I built in November 2017 with a Locker theme. I built this one in It is from my Locker Murphy Bed Series. I took a full-size bed and one bookcase to make it look like a series of lockers. The face of the Murphy bed is divided it into three...

  5. Baseball Bats for Christmas

    Here are the bats. These are all ash, still want to make a few maples ones. These take me about 2 hours each. Tried different stains and waxes on these. The nephews should be happy with these (I hope). Blanks from Walt at GoneBatty.net Bob Nov 25 2009
  6. Special Edition Baseball Bed | Custom

    This is a baseball bed that was completed in November 2011. It is one of my sports theme beds that has been modified a little with a little bit of a special edition. We special ordered bats form Louisville slugger that has the child's name on them. The scoreboard has a little more attention...
  7. Play Ball | Custom

    This is a full size baseball bed that was completed in June 2009. It is a hybrid between my standard baseball bed and the Special Edition. It has the solid wood headboard and footboard as the special edition, but the graphics and painted post as the standard one. The bats and balls are real...
  8. Play Ball Part II

    Nearly 100 days ago I posted this project thinking it was nearly completed. It is finally ready to hang on the basement wall, 3 1/2 months after her birthday. Around 20 years ago my wife & I were living south of Milwaukee & decided to drive to Minneapolis to see our home state Tigers play the...
  9. Baseball and bat holder

    Made this for a friend. He handed me a picture and said, "Please make this for me." No problem, only took me a year to finish…due entirely to my procrastination, obviously not because of the complexity. Made from wood found in my scrap bin. I think they were old cedar floor boards from my attic.
  10. Baseball Old-Timer

    Finally finished painting this. This one was a basswood rough out in PJ Driscoll's class at RWR March 2018. He stands just over 6.5 inches tall. Claude
  11. Baseball bat

    A while back a friend asked if I ever got the chance to make a baseball bat to make one for him. So a couple of weeks ago I was in LV and they had some Maple blanks sitting their, so I picked one and this is the result. Its finished weight is 40 oz and 34" long 2 1/2" dia. Its not regulation but...
  12. Baseball display case

    My rookie debut. This is my first project-about five years ago. After watching a handful of New Yankee Workshop episodes, and memorizing as many woodworking terms as I could (that way I could at least sound like I knew what I was doing in case it didn't look that way), I made this very simple...
  13. Multi-Colored Baseball bed | Custom

    This is a custom style of the baseball beds that I build. The customer chose to use ash wood to match the bats and then do a custom color scheme. What I like about painting over ash is that the grain comes through. Since ask is an open grain like oak, it give it a texture and a real nice...
  14. Cardinals scroll saw sign

    This is a sign I made for my father last year. He is a great man and this thing doesn't do him justice, but he really likes it so that is all that matters. Thanks for looking. (I guess I need to learn how to size photos to post here because the top of the birds' head was not cut off in...
  15. Double Play Baseball Loft | Custom

    This is a where I take my Baseball Bed and turn it into a loft. Not only one but I did two for this customer. It's final destination was Westport, Connecticut. It features a totally customized headboard, which on this one is huge. I also use real Louisville Slugger bats for the guardrails...
  16. Baseball Base Display Case out of Hickory

    A client of mine wanted to display his collectors baseball base but thought the frames were too cheesy. Made out of Hickory. What is your favorite item made out of hickory on lumberjocks? - first time working with this wood - it looks good but its very very hard. Still waiting for glass panel...
  17. Baseball bat bed

    I made this bed for my son for his 1st real bed. The bats are ash. The bed frame is alder with a cherry stain.
  18. Display coffee table, another use for stone texture spray, and lamp

    Since I mentioned another use for stone texture in my how I made the coal post, I thought it might be interesting to see what I was talking about. here is the baseball display coffee table. I used the spray to replicate the dirt around home plate. I used baseball bats for the legs. I used the...
  19. Baseball Bat Table

    Here is simple little table I just completed. It is an Ash Baseball Bat table, to be used as a night stand in my boys bedroom. I got the design inspiration from a table in the April 2013 issue of Fine Woodworking (No. 232). I cheated a little here in that I did not turn the bats. I have...
  20. Big Bama Hat

    This is another big wooden hat that measures 22" x 20". The second picture has it sitting next to a regal ball cap for reference. It's made from plywood and I use a dremel to carve the seams. For the painting I scuff up a little and use glazing to age a little. Fairly quick project and looks...
