Thanks to Brewdoc22 and everyone else in this thread for giving me info to use on my paddle. I decided to get a little fancy and put my name in it.

I wanted to do that, sideways in Stencil, but it's beyond my skill set

KingKlong, did you use a scroll saw or router to letter your paddle? Nice work.

All of these mash paddles have motivated me. I bought the maple paddle from a restaurant supply store several years ago. I don't remember how much it cost but it was pretty cheap. I thought about lots of designs after following this thread and finally decided to pay tribute to my favorite rugby team. Go All Blacks!

The trend seems to be wood, time to switch it up! Here's my s/s paddle. Designed in ProE, laser cut.

Where do you get the laser cutting done?

At work. I work for a company that manufactures custom commercial s/s kitchen equipment. Comes in handy when I need something for the home brewery

I drilled holes with forstner bits and connected them with a jig saw. Most of them were small ones. I did four in the K for instance. Same with the N. The O was one of the biggest bits in the set, and I had to step up sizes to get to it cuz the drill press didn't have enough hp to turn it through the wood.

And thanks for the compliment.

I could do this, but I'd be afraid it would cause me to lose my job. I drew my paddle in inventor. It would have cut quickly. There are cameras everywhere though. I also just like the look of the wood.
