My homebrew buddy brought me back a cricket paddle from India and I was wondering if I could use it as a mash paddle. It says "made from the finest willow" but he said it was the cheapest he could get. It's got some stickers on it so I figured I could lacquer it so they'd stay there. Any reason not to?
