I got this batch of Louisville Slugger bat nubs from Charlie, AKA @wristwatchb. The limiting factor is the skinny end. I got out today and turned some test handles. This is my first attempt making a handle out of the Louisville Slugger wood stubs. Below is the same handle, just different knots. Left to right: Maggard 22mm synthetic, boar, 23mm two-band badger. Below, I am experimenting with shape/size. #1 is suggestive of a ball, and #5 of a ball and bat.
