Can't take credit for the idea. Seen one at a swap meet, then found more examples with a Google search.

Very cool, I'd love to sit there and listen to Grandpa's stories. There's a treasure trove of info contained in these guys memories.

So many great projects on this thread.

Chach86 - Your response that your wife would think your "R" was a vagina
is one of the funniest lines I have heard for a while. Maybe we could meet
some time for a beer. Nebraska would be about half way for both of us.

The bathrooms, hot dog cookers, airplanes, tailgate bench, etc. are all
awesome work.

One of my turning friends that get together Wednesday evenings wants to
turn a couple of baseball bats for his grandsons and I one for mine. Do you
know how hard it is to find wooden bats for little league? All aluminum now

So he bought a piece of ash and we started. I have a tracer attachment
for the Powermatic 90 that I used to turn some table legs and such on
many years ago. Hasn't been used for 20 years. Set it up and looks like

and this

and this

I will do a step by step photo shoot on the next one. Had some set up
work on this one but next one will have some step by step photos.
We can pencil on slogan or name like " Thunder stick " or some such and
woodburn it. fun project and hopefully our grand kids will have these bats
for a long time.
I still have the walnut bat my dad turned for me when I was 11.

Home runs to all,

I just wonder which took longer to make?

I put about 4 hours into the table, not including the dry-time for glue creating the legs or each coat of varnish. In fact I used the down-time between coats 2 and 3 to plug a screw hole in my rear tire.

The video took 135 frames and about 2-2.5 hours to complete. The audio was recorded with my cell phone. This was my first attempt at stop-motion-animation, so I learned new software at the same time.

It was a fun project, thanks for the kind words.

If that's galvanized pipe be careful not to breathe those fumes, not a good thing.
