I can't thank the volunteers for these shows enough, they carried crates and fixtures, watched my booth for me, ran errands and even helped a very good customer carry pots to her car. Another great thing about Sunday was that I won a ribbon and $25 for third place in ceramics, glass and sculpture. The great part is now,(in the true spirit of the internet), I can say AWARD WINNING, as seen in CERAMICS MONTHLY, Whistlecreek Pottery. OK, it's a little much but I had to say it once.
I heard from a few people who were making bats so I added some info on how to make an insert system. If you don't have a table saw, you know someone who does and all the cutting can be done in 10 minutes. Ask them, they'll help you out. Just figure out how big you want your inserts to be and follow the pictures. I wanted to use 6"squares so I started with a 12" square of MDF and banded it with 3" strips.You should also seal your bat holder with some polyurethane or lacquer to make it last longer.
