Creating Lucille from The Walking Dead

Arguably one of the best characters in The Walking Dead to be introduced of late, is Negan. Everywhere he goes, he takes the love of his life, Lucille with him. In this post I'm going to attempt to create one or more scale versions of Lucille.

The general plan is to use my existing lathe (which is a metal lathe) to create a scale version of Lucille, finish her to a screen use finish, complete with barbed wire (fake wire). I've done some calculations based on a full size 33" baseball bat and the limitations of my Clarke lathe. As much as I'd like to make a full size bat, it would be cheaper to buy one of those and it would be too big to display it where I have in mind anyway.

I currently have two 1 meter lengths of Ash wood, 50mm x 50mm, which will allow me to create a 2/3 to 3/4 scale bat. This will end up being between 62cm and 55cm long, being an ideal length for a small display box that I plan to make as well.

More on this project when I start it.
