This is a mash paddle that was ordered by a customer living in North Carolina. He ordered this as a gift for a friend of his that brews beer – a fantastic hobby and one I share as well.

This particular paddle is solid walnut and has three hops flowers in the paddle area – these were cut out using a scrollsaw with a #7 spiral blade.

The name in the handle area was carved using my CNC Router.

The paddle measures around 44 inches long and is 3 1/2 inches wide at the paddle end. It’s a tad over an inch thick.

The finish of choice for a Paddle like this is a coat of food-grade mineral oil.
