    say hello to my little friend

    I thought I might as well take the extended bed out for a test spin.
    I finally figured out a way to incorporate my woodworking with my nosy neighbor problems.*
    Its the club, not the table.(it sure isnt a louisville slugger, but its 34 inches)

    *its a joke, I dont condone violence.

    I can say the handle isnt lumpy like the picture, its actually quite smooth and nice, and close to even.

    "*its a joke, I dont condone violence."

    Depending on the circumstances, I do. Look closely, you have a bat in your shop, just in time for Halloween.

    That'll bonk with the best of the bonkers.

    I don't condone it, but I'm willing to perform it if necessary.

    Hi Allen really nice bat there. I have a maple blank from a baseball bat company that was rejected for some or other reason. Just waiting to be turned. Strange thing you mention bed length, the joke is on me cause i dont think i have the length and never thought about it.

    As for the violence thing, I subscribe to a quote by a famous American of Vietnam era..."Sometimes in order to do good one has to engage in a little evil".
    cheers

    I just read all the requirments for a baseball bat, 2 and 5/8 th thick, around 1 inch at handle. need to figure out weight minus length for a value...maybe next time around.
