Step 1: Removing the Top

Using a band or hand saw, remove approximately 2 inches from the top of the bat

Step 2: Hollowing Out the Bat

Use a drill with the desired size, drill down through the the center of the bat as far as needed

Step 3: Applying "cork"

Fill the hole with as many bouncy balls or golf balls that fit to provide maximum rebound ability

Step 4: Recovering

Apply a large amount of strong wood glue to hold the top into place

Step 5: Leveling the Edges

Using a file, level the edge of the top to the bat, removing any access glue

Step 6: Finishing Touches

After letting the glue dry, add a thick layer of a desired color and clear coat for long lasting protection

<p>Corking a bat will allow you to hit the ball farther. It helps transfer the energy into the ball. It's not allowed in any official gameplay. Getting caught with a corked bat will most likely result in forfeiture.</p>

The glue joint is not a very strong one, just flat wood to wood. If hit on the end it will more than likely fail and allow the stuff inside to fly out. </p>
