This past weekend we played some Pickleball and it started to make me think that I can knock out a paddle or two. For 10+ years I used a CNC to cut foam core wings then finish them with kevlar and carbon using epoxy/resin to strengthen them. I looked a some of the current paddles and they range from wood to an advanced paddle with a Nomex, aluminum or poly core with a finish.
For the first two paddles I am going to use 1/8th inch plywood from home depot (two layers) with kevlar in the middle with two carbon skins on the outside. The second paddle is going to be 1/4th inch plywood with kevlar layer 1 and carbon skin. I will vacuum bag both paddles
Here is the SVG I used to cut the paddles. Per the guidelines they cannot be longer than 17" with 24" total width and length.
