Question: My father is a journeyman carpenter who is homebound because he is taking care of both of his parents (both with alzheimers). He's looking for something he can do at home to bring in some cash, and I was wondering if custom paddles could have a market? I know he wouldnt be the only game in town, but do you think they could conceivably sell?

I would still recommend oiling the wood well before use. I teach woodworking classes and have for years as my primary profession. The oil will not seal the wood but it will prevent the liquid from soaking into the wood during use, as long as you rinse and wipe it dry. Here is one I just made on my 40 inch lathe earlier this week. I used butcher block oil and laid on 1 heavy coat and two lighter coats. I have many paddles and the ones that don't have oil never last nearly as long.

Pretty! Puts mine to shame. Although I don't have access to a lathe!

I hate working with wood but I considered building one just to have a "custom" paddle. The plain ones at the LHBS are around $40 (from what I have seen). I would pay a little more for something that was custom but wouldn't want to pay twice as much. Plus having to figure in shipping on such a large item. I believe that he would have to make something neater than LHBS but get it to the masses without costing much more. If that was possible, I would buy one. Especially if he could "burn in" text of the customer's choosing.

If he wants to try it, I'll sign up for one.

I just let dad know about it, and he seemed stoked. He's going to do some research, and maybe in the near future Ill get him in contact with you.
