Just a little update guys. The drawknife hasnt killed me and Im still here.

Had a few life issues get in the way in that Ill be leaving my job in February so the last couple of months have been spent trying to find a new one!

Hopefully once thats sorted I can restart my bat making journey.

What line of work are you in @SAFC2403 - perhaps someone on here may be able to help point you towards an opportunity?
