Carved Wooden "bat" by Step





Introduction: Carved Wooden "bat" by Step

About: I'm an experimentalist, a scientist and I have a tendency to do things just for the sake of doing them, or to find out what they're like. I love life, show me something I can feel good about. I've got an ...

This is a hand-carved (from a single piece of tree) club. The design is of a head with a sphere in it's mouth.

I didn't make it, but I know the guy who did, and he doesn't have access to the internet.
10 hours work I am told...

Phone-pictures I'm afraid.

      I did know, but can't remember now. I was just a piece of common tree, the colour having been added. Thick bit was trunk, the long bit a branch.

    what is the animal head?...
    I can just imagine some-one wielding it and saying.." surrender, lest you too feel the bite... of the (insert animal's name here)!"

    If you need a keyboard, just ask! (unless you just have not got to the shop yet)

    Wow. You must love this site, my frustration would over power my urge to sit here on Instructables and talk to people if I didn't have a keyboard.

    i'd like to see that, but it'd probably involve hanging around Step's place for a coulple of days.


    Nice Shelale, this one is menacing enough to be considered more of a Cudgel.

    How does he stain it so dark? ash is the whitest of wood, I really like the finish he has achieved.

    it was your classic shillelagh (or however it should be spelled) before it was carve, i'll ask Step next time i see him about the stain.
