First, you need to get a solid piece of Hickory, Ash, or Maple wood, that is 3 inches by 3 inches, and preferrably 38 inches long. You put the lumber in a wood laythe, and turn it, until you have a round cylinder of wood. You then mark the edges of the wood, where the handle will be, and the tip of the bat, and begin shaping your bat on the wood laythe. Once you have the shape, and correct diameter (a little less than 3 inches for a Baseball bat, 2.5 for softball)you sand the bat to make it smoothe. You can then burn an image, or wording into the bat, and use a thin coat of laquer to make it shiny, and withstand water a little better.
