How Cricket bats are made

Thanks for sharing.

If I am correct, Andrew is one of the few who hand shapes the bat.

But in India (and Pakistan I would say) at some factories the bat are hand sanded which requires extra bit of work.
There's a whole series of those videos from GM.
I would prefer CMC to hand made.
That V joint between the handle and the bat blade must be very darn strong ?? I mean its just held together by glue... and the pounding and pressure it taqkes from a hard cricket ball sureley must break it

I remember cheap soft ball bats also used to slit apart there when young, this was just by tapping it on the ground in that im ready stance.
