You’ll never want to buy a baseball bat again after George Vondriska and veteran woodworker A.J. Moses teach you how to turn a customizable baseball bat to fit your preferred parameters, including league requirements and weight specifications.

Follow along as A.J. gives you the tips and techniques you need to turn your very own custom bat. He’ll guide you through the challenging steps of selecting the proper wood for your billet, sizing the bat and getting the billet on the lathe in the right position.

You’ll be able to expertly lay out the dimensions, taper to the correct diameters, and sand your baseball bat down. You’ll then learn to weigh the bat and make adjustments accordingly, and to finish it all off, A.J. will demonstrate how to apply your brand and an eye-popping polyurethane finish so the bat is ready for the big leagues.
