Design

20 minutes

design the paddle. I chose to go with a simple design with a rounded rectangle design. you just adjust your name and font to whatever you would like it to say. I designed the holes to take a shot glass, but you could make the numbers smaller or delete them all together and make the holes a little bigger.

Carve

120 minutes

I chose to use a rough cut cedar 2×6 from the local big box hardware store, but material could be whatever look you want to go for. I liked the thicker look but you could do one 3/4" piece with the holes cut all the way through and the words engraved and then glue it to another 3/4" blank

Finishing

I finished by using a miter saw to finish the perimeter cuts as my bit wasn’t long enough to through the 1 1/2" block of wood. then I hand planed the edges smooth and smoothed the back side. used a sanding sponge for the holes and to know the edges down. then I used an orbital sander with 120 then 220 to smooth all the faces.

for finish (and I recommend this finish for all wood products) I used natural danish oil and then 3 coats of semi gloss spray on laquor

Ian.... What program did you use to design? I am trying to design one for a customer but Easel Pro won't cut out the entire paddle for me.
