So after learning how to make bats for myself for a project required for graduation i had my interest sparked. If I was to start up a business making and selling bats would anyone on here be interested in buying some? I'd be willing to work with you in the price category of it since it is early on so I could get some forum member's reviews and opinions on here.

P.s. Itmight be good for you all to know the wood types I could get at the moment, I can do ash, maple, bamboo, birch, and also birch composite

When I order a few more blanks this week I was planning on getting a few birch so you are in luck!

If you do birch, and can do custom stains I am also in. As soon as you are ready, I would like to order a birch bat.

I can do custom stains and get your name on it or anything you want in that customization department. Realizing I am at the starting stages of the business and unsure what to charge for the bats since no one other than some people from the local high schools have swung them. So if anyone has prices they think are reasonable for both me and the customer please feel free to share your thoughts and if you personally are interested in a bat then shoot me a pm and we can work something out! Thanks!

I'd be interested to see what your price point is... for birch as well. I've been very interested in turning a birch bat but never got away from my tried and true C271 Ash.

Throw me a PM.

Hey everyone, after doing checks on shipping costs and after making a few customs for some members I have come up with some prices for the different types of wood.
Custom Ash $55
Custom Birch $60
Custom Bamboo $65
Custom Maple $70
Custom Composite Birch $75

All prices have shipping costs included

You can choose your model, handle and barrel colors, knob size, and have any personal phrases or really anything you would like put on the bat for whatever reasons you would like.

I am also more than willing to consider any sort of trade you would like if that is how you would like to go about a deal.
