The Home-made Bat!
SPORTS FANS! We're celebrating the success of certain local bat swinging sports team with a new wood turning class - THE HOME-MADE BAT
Spend an afternoon at the MAKE! Workshop hand-turning your very own (commemorative) baseball bat!*
Then grab a wood burning kit and personalize it with your names, scrimshaw, or the logo of your favorite team!
This is a great class for a group of friends or family to commemorate a milestone together - bachelor / bachelorette party, seeing a friend off on a new job, kids off to college, RECENT LOCAL TEAM VICTORY, etc.
So grab your fellow sports fan(s) and join us for HOME MADE BAT!
*Our lawyers make us say this: Using a bat you made yourself to actually play baseball is inherently risky. So, we can't tell you to actually play ball with your bat. Think of it as a sort of self-made souvenir. Something you can personalize to commemorate a special moment in your life, point to the wall and say "I made that!".
The class fee includes a proper ash wood bat-blank and all other materials.
Clothes to get dusty, lunch, good attitude
Bat blanks and other instructional materials will be providedCancellation Policy
