Making a baseball bat from rough-sawn lumber

Using rough-sawn maple and walnut lumber, Linn from the Darbin Orvar YouTube channel crafts a baseball bat from scratch for MAKE. Watch as she explains every step in detail, from cutting, to jointing and planing, gluing and clamping the pieces together, re-jointing and trimming, and then turning the wood bat blank on the lathe to shape, sand, and wax the final product.
