Stickers is always a nice touch, however I'm not sure of the benefits of branding it 'Edge Bats'  ;)

A collaboration brought to you in conjunction with Duck and Run and Woodworm  :D

Twine turned up in the post at the weekend so here we are, all done. Sanded up to a nice finish, and went old school with black binding. 2.12 on the nose with one grip, picks up nicely - happy edge! Just need to get it knocked in for forum nets now.

Looks good, you have done a great job with that.

If I could have one ask this winter it would be cor loads more threads like this!

Thanks @Buzz , I'm really pleased with it - turned out much better than I thought it would for a first attempt! Would definitely encourage anyone thinking of it to have a go at shaping.

It's definitely on the cards when I get my hands on a bit more workspace! Kevlar/aramid composite wrap of the handle is the way forward I reckon, watch this space.

Have been reminded that I haven't posted photos of the stickers! Went quite minimalist, what do you think?

Often Less is more with branding and the stickers have a classy look. Personally I'm unsure about square toes as I haven't experienced one myself, but it looks like a very useable bat. What is it's weight?
Good job. Will we see it at nets in a few weeks?

Thanks mate, self made bat is stage one complete at least! Will get working on the ton ;)

@Gurujames thought I'd go for a Laver-style toe as quite like it personally, will see how it holds up! Not too worried about cracking with the corners rounded off. Bare and with one grip it was 2.12, in current state with two grips and stickers/scuff she's a healthy 2.14. Fingers crossed I'll get the necessary pass for nets, if so then it'll definitely make an appearance.

Cracking stuff Ed looks a real top quality effort, finished really well and a lovely shape.

Where did you get the stickers from?
