Every year I make little projects for a couple of our winter friends in Florida. The paddle was a request by a buddy that has very large hands and wanted a paddle with a longer handle so he can beat his grandsons at ping pong. It’s made with some scrap Purple Heart I had. He also wanted sandpaper on the surface (220 grit).

Thanks for the comments. Dick the mirror is hickory and I said the same thing about the paddle.
