WWGOA reader Henry Kay took Paul Mayer’s cavatelli paddle to another level. He owns a CNC (computer numerical controlled) router system and programmed it to make the paddle and engrave the recipe on the reverse side.
In an effort to make the text easier to see, Henry darkened it with coffee. The entire paddle was then finished with mineral oil. In retrospect Henry said he would skip adding the recipe to future paddles as it came out a little fuzzy and hard to read. A suggested alternative would be to take the paddles to a laser wood engraving shop and have them engrave the recipe.Thanks, Henry, for sharing your work.
