Leachys isolation activity.
« on: April 24, 2020, 07:39:48 PM »

Hey guys,

So with the current situation I decided to give batmaking a go.

Ordered a G3 part made from John along with a few tools to get me going. I got a lovely draw knife, round bottom plane, and a spokeshave.

Pictures of the cleft:




So without much of a plan I started hacking away and mid way through the bat started to take shape:


And after some fine tuning with the spokeshave and a couple of Planes this is what I'm left with.




Overall I'm dead chuffed, it's 2.95 bound and gripped, and flies, pick up is lovely and I've definitely caught the bat making bug!

That is a top effort! Looks a good size bat for the weight.

You dont hang around do you mate! Must have only arrived yesterday or today!

Looks a top effort. Glad you got on well with the tools

Plenty more clefts and tools in stock if anyone else fancies a go. Ive become a bit of a tool hoarder so have a few spares of most things

It is mate, thanks very much for the kind words,  I wanted to make something up that had good coverage and picked up well and it does both of those so I'm well happy. There will definitely be a few more clefts on order over the next couple of days!!

Thanks mate really chuffed with everything and I'm still scratching my head as to how that was a G3! Haha

Thanks mate,

Yeah it's decent sized without being a monster, I'd certainly be happy to use it myself!

Thanks mate, bit of a cross between a more modern tusker and the shape Kane Williamson uses

Another cleft up on the bench today, chuffed with how this turned out just under 2.11 in its current state, so 2.12 dressed.
