I want to give a big thank you to Michael Mathews for his assistance and advice in completing my first wood turned piece. I have done very little turning - nothing from beginning to end.

I completed work on a baseball bat I have worked on for a few weeks now. This bat will strictly be a display piece, and has been created as a replica of a tv show prop. The bat is actually four pieces of sapele glued together. I am not sure if that constitutes calling it a segmented piece, but maybe someone can explain the true definition of segmented wood turning.

I will post a few pictures to show progression through the project. But this post is less as a show and tell, I wanted to say thanks to Michael.

Very nice. What's the tv show? A baseball bat is on my list of projects, that is when I upgrade to a full size lathe...

You said tv show, and the bat looked like a Lucille. I made this one about two years ago.

I do like yours, was it also turned? Your bat was probably created back when Negan was introduced; my inspiration came a little later when I had access to a large lathe, as James mentioned.

Yes, I had turned it from a blank of ash I had sitting around . Followed by slight distress, walnut/mahogany stain, burned in the oval, and made the Barb wire from aluminum and leather for the barbs. It was made a couple days after the promo stills of Negan came out for the show.
Your bat is looking really NICE!
