Well I was pretty close to needing a dowel to hold my thumb together but just enough holding together. Hopefully good news with the specialist tomorrow and Ill be back to bat making in no time. Hoping early new year the hand will be strong enough for some shaping

A Lami-thumb might do the trick and keep it going for a few more years!

Well the specialist couldnt make an assessment as its still too much of a mess atm. Probably another couple of weeks before the swelling has gone down enough to make a full assessment.

Having regular clean and dressing changes every 2 days so hopefully should see a little progress every few days

How is your thumb, John? Hope youre on the mend.

Healing nicely although likely to have some perm or long standing issues with feeling going forward.

Im back to bat making. Its a touch slower than normal but trying to work around it. Dont think the freezing workshop helps much so as the weather improves it should become easier.

Ive started machining up the batch of clefts that I started before I did it, along with a new delivery and Ive got a lot of very nice willow to choose from. Plenty in all grades to work with which is great. My new bandsaw jig is up and running and making life much easier and safer when machining up.

Glad to hear you are back in the workshop John

I messaged you regarding a custom bat a while back, not sure if you received it? Or if you did and just have a backlog of work, dont worry no rush. Mend up first and foremost

Thanks mate. Its been nice to get back into it. Having to take it slow due to lack of feeling in half my thumb and soreness in the rest but its progressing so thats the main thing

Happy to hear youre able to work again,easing yourself in.
Any new shapes on the horizon? You have a nice range as it is and you made a lovely x3 for me and you were great to deal with.

Due to last year Ive delayed any new bats until next year. Always tinkering with shapes in the workshop and custom make a lot both on and off the forum. As soon as Ive caught up on orders Im going to look at doing some specials. Got a few nice shapes Ive been working on but put on hold whilst I get through some orders

New pads and gloves will be on the website as soon as I can chance to get some new pics done.

Nope different this time and even better in my opinion. Quality is spot on
