My wife and I feel in love with this when I saw it in the WoodSmith magazine.
I made the handle out of Red Oak and the paddle is made from Santa Maria.
The finish (mineral oil and bees wax) made the grain come to life. The peel is 1/2” thick and tapers to 1/16”.
I did the big taper with a taper sled in my planner which brought it down to 1/8”. I then used a block plane to add a 1/2” wide bevel at the bottom that brought it down to 1/16”.
I just need to find a nice decorative hanger to get it up on the wall. Some thing in cast iron maybe.
Thanks for looking and happy holidays!!!
