A buddy of mine just bought an unfinished baseball bat. No it is not just a 4×4 which is what I asked him.
It is a maple baseball bat with the ends left on. I have not seen it but I assume it has just come off the lathe and he must now trim off the ends and sand and finish it. He figures it is a good project he can do with his son.
The bat is maple but I have no info past that. He was wondering what type of finish to use. Any ideas as to what a good, durable finish would be?
I assume it can’t be too smooth or the ball would tend to slide off too much.
Any help would be great.
