A second ping pong paddle I just finished. Same process as the first one, except I used walnut for the paddle itself and cherry for the handle. For pads I used this foam paper stuff I found at Walmart.

Does different wood and padding play significantly?

Cool job

Nice! Now that you mention it, I have some of that foam in the craft closet.

Monte -

I was definitely wondering about the wood, but I would guess so. Most paddles are made up of laminated wood…im assuming to avoid any sort of cupping. The rubbers of the paddle make a huge difference are pretty specific (i.e. are you a power or finesse player?).

When I first saw your photos my brain was seeing a table top with a paddle shaped hole in it. Thought you had posted wrong photo. Suddenly it changed and I could see the nice paddles you made. Did this optical illusion happen to any other viewers?
