Maple Bat Blanks
The maple bath blanks were easy to order and delivery was smooth. Would be better if you could have a choice of the weight of the blanks.

I highly recommend this product for shaping maple bats. The bat has a solid sound when hitting a baseball ball. It will pass any ink dot test.
Almost finished, dense wood, tight grain.
Finished product.  Lots of pop.
Ready to shape

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.
What kind of maple do you guys use?
Eric K on Nov 19, 2015
