Carving custom wooden baseball bats

Xylo Bats is a company in Texas crafting custom wooden baseball bats. Owner Leland Wetzel made his first bat in 2012, and now the company produces over 1,000 bats a year. The process includes cutting a wood billet into a bat on a CNC lathe, hardening the bat with a deer antler, and staining the bat with a vivid color. These wooden bats take two to three days to make, and since wooden bats can break, they come with a one-year warranty. For more, visit: Cinematographer Chase Roberts
