This is a Mash Paddle that was ordered from a wonderful customer living in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She ordered it because she wanted a great present for her Husband – that’s the best project I can make because it makes at least three people happy if I do a good job; Me, Her and her Husband! :-)
This is the first paddle I’ve made that is Solid Walnut and I love the way this turned out – very dark and luscious. Almost like a bar of chocolate.
After shaping and sanding, I used my scrollsaw to do the Hops Flower designs in the paddle end as well as the lettering in the handle.
The paddle measures around 44 inches long and is 3 1/2 inches wide at the paddle end. It’s around an inch thick.
The finish of choice for a Paddle like this is a coat of food-grade mineral oil.
