Wow thanks for showing me these paddles. They're beautiful, i actually haven't made mine yet. I started making frames and boxes for some of my sisters, and other random crafts for my Big. I got the paint for my paddle but one of the colors was wrong, so i need to adjust the color and get started. sylviasushi27 your paddle is so detailed, you've inspired me to take my time so it's really as nice as i can make it.

These paddles are intense! I'm half tempted to post mine but the ones here outshine the ones any Greek at my school has done by a lot lol

My school the little made a paddle for the big, and the pledge class made for the NME and President. The NME assistant got a Teddy Bear plaque.

We also did a mini paddle exchange over one winter break.

This is one I made for the paddle exchange:

I made this for a sister that I met here on GC (I think) who never had a little:

Here are my paddles:



The three big ones, the one in the middle is from my little, the other two are when I was NME.

Well since other guys did it... :P

The color doesn't come through b/c I took the pictures on my cell phone but you can still see details. Someone took better pictures but has yet to post them.

For my Big Bro









ETA: Apparently swords are popular with guys? lol We each have one in our posts!

We have a couple more swords as well. Including one that was designed to look a little bit like the Theta Chi badge. It was a giant theta with two swords crossed behind it.

Two other people in my family have done swords (that I know of). I only saw one, though but it was AWESOME. It was 100% hand carved and was a sword going vertically through our letters.

Yeah did you cut that yourself? If so it must have been a pain and a half to do so.
