Some of our fondest memories are in our childhood, and ours was making baseball bats out of broken shovel handles, carving in knobs with an Old Timer knife until the feel in our hands was just right. We’d spend countless hours hitting rocks in our driveway with these rudimental, yet comfortable shovel handle bats. What else do you do when you’re a kid? Explore, dream, experiment, build, perform. Never be bored!!
Years later as life seems to mysteriously come back around, sometimes you take notice of childhood experiments and memories. Events can spark a recollection of emotions of the past. We believe everything is for a reason and nothing is really happenstance, our childhood wasn't happenstance and was full of dreams and purpose waiting to be fulfilled into great possibilities. Stumbling onto an old lathe and some craftsman making a baseball bat did just that. Memories come back, momentum builds, and you launch.
