Why not just buy one of these from bayouclassicdepot.com? They're only $6. LOL

FYI - I got the same paddle at Home Depot for $8. It works great.

I bought it, then realized it's pretty cheap. So I thought "I have oak, why not just trace it and make one out of oak?" So I've made two so far, but haven't used either yet.

are you sure it is all oak plywood? Usually hardwood plywoods are actually only hardwood on the outer veneers and something cheaper (like pine, or cheaper) on the inner veneers.

Sorry, not trying to be a pita just speaking from experience. You want a nice hard rock maple paddle? I can make one for you, I can get lots of hard rock maple scraps. I don't have a lot of time to make them, but I could get around to it with the right motivation

I was looking at making my own paddle and came accross this:
http://www.homebrew.com/articles/article08300201.shtml

All of that sawing and sanding seemed like a lot of hard work. Then I saw the pic of the one made of wood dowel. Hmmm. Off to HD. 8 or 9 bucks worth of hardwood dowel and an hours work with a saw and the drill press and I had a fair replica. I used aliphatic resin to glue it. (OK for short exposure to hot water.) I sealed it with mineral oil as the article suggests. Works great.

If I were really lazy, I would just spring for this:

What? Why on earth would anyone use polymerized polyvinylchoride? Don't you know that they use a platinum catalyst to force the vinyl molecules into an unnatural chain? Are you trying to kill someone?????
