of wood significantly affects its strength. The usual GP designs have enough "meat" that the higher moisture content associated with an oil finish will not put the paddle at risk.

But anyone planning on planing the last ounce off the shaft and the blade, and then doing an oil finish, might be headed for trouble. A thinner, lighter paddle might need to be sealed against moisture by epoxy and spar varnish.
