Very nice. I see you have invested in some higher grade willow with growing confidence.

My supplier is very generous with the willow he has supplied me and Im very thankful for it. Some lovely willow to be working with both in terms of grains and weights.

Been quite a busy week with a few repairs and some orders coming through which is a really nice feeling and each bat seems to be getting better and easier to do as well as now having a really good feel for all the tools as well as finding my own way of doing things.

So this is the first of the orders shaped up this evening. SL06 profile and request was long extended middle and max weight of 2lb 8oz finished. This is currently 2lb 6.8oz before sanding has started

Specs for those interested are:
Edges 33mm Max
Toe 17mm edge and 28mm at centre of toe
Shoulder 12mm
Semi oval handle

This is a G2 cleft and Im going to say its one of the best pinging bits of willow Iv ever come across, just a lively response and deep sound with the mallet and old ball.

Oh the side in profile shot was just before I finished the shaping and before Id finished blending the spine into the toe

what does a sick betta look like

Looking great! Seem to have picked it up pretty quickly.

Have you noticed any "trademarks" that come out in your finished products yet? Along the lines of Keeley shoulders, B3 shoulder heights etc. Always find these little nuances between batmakers interesting  :)

SL06 is grade 3 and spot on 2.10 with single grip and thick oval handle. Extended middle so very long driving area as per customers request.

Sorry just seen this. I seem to find I make a dropped shoulder shape without thinking about it but apart from that no not really. Had some lovely feedback about the thickness I keep in the toes but also keep a bat balanced which is really good to hear but thats it really.  These two Iv just finished are only numbers 7 & 8 Iv made fully so a small pond to fish from
