another +1 on maple. I got an 8ft section for $4 at the local hardwood store, enough to make 2 paddles. I'm not a woodworker and don't have all the tools but i got it done.

I've used maple, walnut, and cherry. They have all worked equally well (in my opinion). This is one I just whipped up for my brother and it is walnut with four coats if butcher block oil.

I made a Mash Paddle out of a piece of Maple about a week ago. I bought it for about $8.00 at Menard's.

Hard Maple is the best. I have a nice one made out of sugar maple with the bird's eye imperfection. It is possibly the most gorgeous thing ever.

Quartersawn White Oak Mash Paddle
 
1 Attachment(s)

I do a lot of woodworking and have lots of scraps lying around the shop. I used this piece of quartersawn white oak to make my mash paddle last night. I am brewing my first all grain beer tomorrow. I'll try to attach a pic of the paddle to this post.

Thanks,

Fred

I made a paddle out if 4' long piece of 1X6 Maple. I will try and add a picture but this app keeps crashing on my phone ...not a 100% original idea but I made a barley grain design in the wide part of the paddle.
