Don't have a pic at the moment, but mine is made of maple. I've seen others made out of walnut.

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 usually use maple. But one I brew my Brutus smoked irish ale I make a paddle out of oak and. Scorch it everytime I stick it in my mash to get a nice smoke flavor. Red oak taste better than white oak in my opinion

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.
