I was recently commissioned to build this ping pong paddle for a friend. This is the third I have done; they seem to get easier every time. It took around 5 hours overall, and consists of a main body of Olivewood; edging, handle grips, and bow ties of walnut; and cherry for the inlaid K on the handle. It is finished with Watco Danish Oil. Any comments/ suggestions welcome and thanks for looking! DMiller

Looks great but tough to put much spin on the ball.

Thanks redoak and ralbuck! Yes, they are a little harder to put spin on, I personally like how they hit better than a padded paddle, though. Thanks!
