good lookin' paddle!

what kind of glue did you use? any concerns about how it will hold up in a hot wet environment?

personally i would have made the holes in the blade a bit bigger to promote the breaking up of clumps, but that's just me

It's titebond 2. FDA compliant. Nah, not worried at all. It's really strong glue. I've seen boards break before the glue joint.

The holes should be fine. They are about 3/8 wide. If I have trouble, I'll do something to fix it but it should be ok.

I can't wait to get some oil on it, the grain is really going to pop and darken.

Wouldn't you be better off with TBIII? I thought II is not water proof, just resistant?

Edit: Found it. TBII is Type II resistant. TBIII is Type I resistant. Both sound pretty good to me. Good to know.

Type I water resistance
Any glue that passes ANSI Type I water resistance specification. This test is more rigorous than the Type II test. It involves specimens being immersed in boiling water for four hours, then dried in an oven at 150F, then boiled again for four hours, and cooled in water just prior to testing. Specimens must meet wood failure requirements to pass this test.

Type II water resistance
Any glue that passes the ANSI Type II water-resistance specification. This is a rigorous test that involves specimens being soaked in water for four hours, then dried in an oven at 120F. If no delamination is seen after three cycles, the glue passes.

Thanks! It's amazing what you can accomplish with a jig-saw, a couple of hole saws and a router.

Eh, it wasn't home made but it only cost a couple of quid and it saves elbow grease.

I made this a little while ago - my other passion is scuba diving. Made it from a maple blank bought from HD.

Really Nice work....but I would hesitate to put oil on it, an mash temps oil finishs can leach into the beer, and aside from other things, have adverse effects on your beers head.......Leave it Naked and get good head


Also I have to warn on the use of walnut......while is common to see spoons and bowls made from walnut, it is also a very common to see people wickedly allergic to the oils that will leach out of walnut into your beer. I work in wood, and know alot of people that can't even breathe in the dust. I always have to wear a mask even with shop filtration and dust collection.
