Product Information:

Northern white ash from Pennsylvania and upstate New York is recognized as the best material for making baseball bats. Throughout the years, baseball bats have been made from many types of wood, including ash, oak, maple and hickory. However, as years went by players found that bats made of ash would hit the ball best. Ash makes a medium-weight bat which allows a batter to swing at the advancing ball quickly. Graded for quality with straight grain being the most important criteria, these billets are suitable for college and all lower levels of play. Billets measure 2- 7/8" in diameter and 37" in length, and, because they have been vacuum-dried to a moisture content of 9-11%, they offer superior strength.


  • 2- 7/8" diameter x 37" long

  • Vacuum dried

  • Fraxinus americana




  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ¼" of size listed.

  • Wood Sense: Spotlight on ash - You may never have worked ash in the shop, but you’re sure to have had contact with the wood at some time—it’s the traditional material for the handles of hoes, rakes, shovels, and most other non-striking tools.

    Comments about Ash Baseball Bat Billet :

    I have purchased 3 of these billets and turned them down for gifts to my family. They were all very happy to get them as they are a baseball family. I personalized the burn label for each of them. All are being used extensively and holding up very well.
