Sorry I haven't posted sooner, been a bit busy with work, school, and in-laws.
Received my paddle Thursday and it turned out beautiful. It sat in my cubical all day and people couldn't keep their hands off of it. Super solid piece of maple, looked pretty darn true too. The tooling is awesome, the detail of the feathers was superb. I am extremely happy with the paddle.
SWMBO saw it and loved it as well. "You should get another one to go above the door of the brewery"
Thanks again DeepSea!
