Money is a little tight this holiday, so I made alot of christmas gifts - beer, birdhouses and such. I had an oak blank left over and decidided to make me a mash paddle.

Materials:

1x4 oak blank

Tools
Pencil - draw out what you want on the blank-
Jig Saw - cut out rough design
Hole Saws and drill - I went with 1 3/8 and 3/4 for a random "bubble" pattern
Router - to round handle for comfort
Sandpaper - Used 100 grit and then followed with 320 for a satin finish

I'm debating getting a woodburner and burning a check mark in the handle every time I brew with it....
