I bought two bats. My grandson turned the first one. He shortened his by five inches. I’m doing the second one.
One of the bats had a large chunk out of it.I will use that for the grip .

Perfect for making wood bats
My 14 yr. old son wanted to start a business making and selling wood bats to his fellow baseball players. We searched for the right wood to start with and found Rockler. These blanks were perfect! We were able to make high quality wood baseball bats worthy of selling. Thank you! We’ll be ordering more very soon!
We added some vinyl labels prior to poly

Nice to have pre-rounded stock. Although I could round a square stock, nice to save time. And the maple is more affordable than ash.

Maple Rough Turning Blank - Baseball Bat Blank: Nominal = 2-3/4"+ D by 37" L
This was perfect to use for making a rolling pin. The pin has the marble body with marblewood handles. It's beautiful, and I have enough maple for a second rolling pin!

Other than baseball bats
I wanted a hard wood to make “ throwing tops “ and small vases. By using my mini lathe I was able to create the items. I do recommend using the maple baseball blank for all needs.

I'm making some turnings that have to be greater than 2" but smaller than 2 3/8". This is not much more than a 2" and way less expensive than a 3". We'll see how it works for the projects I have in mind.

What kind of maple do you guys use?
Eric K on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To my knowledge its "hard" maple, which is a common term for sugar maple.
Are your blanks kiln dried?
Leigh J on Jul 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Apparently yes ! I just checked with my moisture meter and it reads 10%. It is very nice wood I made some Chinese ball with it for Christmas ornaments
Which weighs more, ash blanks or maple?
Jim D on Sep 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I weighed both blanks before I started shaping and the ash blank was lighter by one once.
