You might be able to use mineral oil on the [wood] paddles IF they start to dry out and split. It's what you use on wood cutting boards (such as butcher blocks) to keep them from drying out.

I got my paddle base from Restaurant Depot, using the wood mixing paddle and then putting some holes in it. Paddle cost in the $6-$8 range for a 3' long version (they also have 2' and 4' versions)...

I am hunting for a wood blank that has a lot of good character in it that I can make into a paddle.

If your having trouble finding wood consider looking at cargo pallets. It may sound wierd but most of them are good hard wood, occasionally exotics. I took wood shop for 4 years back in high school and the first few days were usually pulling nails.

Here's another one, similar to some others. I had a spare piece of oak from my son's science project a few years back. The rest was recovered from a set of old TV trays....bamboo maybe?

Thanks for all of the inspiration!

Well guys, you have inspired me. I just finished this mash paddle that my dad, brother and I started over Christmas. Made from a 36" 4/4 scrap board of birch... Good times!
