Hickory Spanking Paddle
Hickory is another wood you don't come across every day, but it is a hard wood and has a distinctive, lovely grain.The wood in this toy is its natural color for I haven't applied any stain, but I have given it several coats of non-yellowing lacquer after much careful sanding. All of the edges are rounded, as are all my paddles.The overall length is 16 inches and the width is 3.25 inches. Hickory is not as heavy a wood as oak or ash, so these paddles feel lighter in my hand. I'm told that the sensation on impact is more sting-y and less thuddy than the oak and ash paddles.
Thanks for looking. Be sure to get in touch if you have questions. And always have fun!
