Reading Time: 1 minute

This is wood of choice for baseball bats. It has the best strength to weight ratio, and since most players do not want a bat greater than 32 oz. this becomes significant. For the same reason, it is used for tool handles, hockey sticks, and canoe paddles. Historically it was used for food bowls because it had no significant odor or taste.

I think that w eoften forget how beautiful this North American wood is.
