Default Turned two of the new Baseball kits

These were for my brother and his girlfriend who are both big Baseball fans. I had some left over materials from some other pens I did so they just used the scraps and picked out how they wanted to lay them out.

Paduak wood on the green one and black/white ebony on the pink one.

Nice kit, decent amount of material to the blanks when done. It is a bit top heavy and the curved bolt action is odd if you're used to a normal straight bolt action. Lots to line up cosmetically if you're into that, like the laces on the ball and the bat/batter at the top.

These kits are expensive !! ... $19 for chrome, $20 for 24kt, and $23 for the "antique" brass, bronze, and pewter.

Now this is my opinion and you can hate me for it but sometimes honesty has to prevail. I do not like this one bit. Over the top kit and gaudy. The blanks do not go with the theme of the kit. I believe if this kit is to be used plain baseball bat wood is the only thing that would work well. Maybe some segmenting of the wood to mimic the handle and upper bat. Todays bats use many colored woods but never colored acrylic flowered or swirly woods. Maybe do a decal bat company blank. Just throwing out a few suggestions and thoughts for future pens of this kind. Hope you do not take offense to this comment. Not my intention.

No offense taken at all, the people who comissioned them wanted them designed that way. All in the eye of the beholder I guess. Personally I think there is to much going on also. Kits like that seem gimmicky to me.
