I wouldn't treat it.

From tipicreeper, "wet down the paddle with a rag. This will allow the grain to raise then sand it down again.
Then it shouldn't 'rough up' for some time."

What was said above. Don't add anything to the paddle you wouldn't want in your beer.

You should cook the wood. About 600 degrees over an open flame should be good. ;)

In case you hadn't guessed I am not a Yankees fan...

Yes it is maple. Sound like this paddle will go naked once sanding is complete.

Another vote for naked. I have a paddle made from sugar maple with birds eye in. It's absolutely beautiful
