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

Where did you get the stickers from?
Thanks mate! Got a few sets printed up by a local vinyl printers who did a decent job.

Was just thinking we haven't had enough bat making threads on the forum lately, so.thought I'd post an update ;) Been out in the garden sanding up this one this afternoon, quite pleased with how it's coming! Just need to work on a better method for binding the handle...

Looking lovely Ed!

Did you use any of the tools you had off me yet?

Also did you see the youtube video I made a while back - made a cordless drill-powered binding lathe with some wood, pillow bearings and threaded rod.

Yeah they were dead useful for doing the shoulders on this, thanks mate - much better than just relying on a rasp like I did for the previous bat! Didn't see the video, can you post a link? Sounds like the kind of thing I'm considering knocking up so could be quite useful!
