Introduction: The Spanker

Picture of The Spanker

Folks, do you know anyone who is unruly, misbehaving, or just needs a good ol' spanking? Well I have just the right tool for you. Speaking of having the right  tools, did you know that Techshop offers a great place for anyone who is looking to build, hack, or invent? This project right here was made using one of Techshop's most popular tools. Can you guess what it is?  If you said a laser engraver then you are correct!!!

In this Instructable, I will show you how to build your own spanker. You can customize your own or use the Corel Draw file provided if you happen to be in a hurry to spank someone or yourself.

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

For this project, I used 2 different colors of acrylic. Choose 2 of your favorite colors. I've seen similar types of spanking paddles sold online with just a single sheet 1/4" acrylic. We will be using 3 separate layers to provide more mass and a more rigid paddle. I advise against the single layer paddles since they do shatter if you spank someone hard enough. Practice safe spanking.

Step 2: Lets Design

Here is the process I used to build this paddle. I chose Corel Draw since it was readily available. You folks can also use Adobe Illustrator to build your paddle.

The following photos will provide you with the steps I used. Scroll over the photos for steps.

After your design is complete, make sure you select "Hairline" in Corel Draw so that the laser knows which lines to cut out.

Step 3: Fire in the Hole!!! Its Time to Cut.

Here is the middle layer being cut out. This is the 1/8" piece. I leave the protective film on while I do my cuts.

Speed 17
Freq. 5000

Step 4: Fire in the Hole Part Deux

Here is the 1/4" layer being cut. We going to cut 2 pieces out of this. These will be the "bread" of our sandwich. Again, do not peel off protective film.

Step 5: Time to Peel

Here are the 3 pieces laid out. Now its time to stack them on top of each other with the thinnest layer (1/8") in the middle. Make sure the design lines up and just peel the protective film from the sides that are going to be glued on.

Step 6: Glue and Clamp

Now we can use the acrylic cement to glue our pieces together. I find that a paint brush is the best way to apply the acrylic cement. You can do 2 pieces at a time or all 3. Once aligned, clamp the pieces together. Wait for it to set for at least 15 min.

Step 7: Peel the Outsides

Another reason for not peeling the protective film on the outside parts of the paddle is that just in case you spill acrylic cement or get some on your fingers, it will protect the outside finish of your paddle. So just peel it off after the acrylic cement dries and you have yourself a finished paddle.

Enjoy and have yourself a spanking good time!!

couldn't using this be considered child abuse

Kids these days need whoopings

garypcom (author)h88642012-03-20

My father used a two-piece leather strap made to sharpen straight razors. It was about 2.5 inches wide and about 2 feet long. We never considered it abuse because most of the time we deserved it.

I know a woman who says the same thing when her husband hits her.

Here in Arizona it's absolutely legal for school teachers to physically punish their students. Just sayin.

dr_peru (author)2015-01-18

Nice! I hope you don´t mind, that I added it to my Collection of kinky stuff :)

jumb5150 (author)dr_peru2015-01-24

Not at all man. :)

frankie0517 (author)2012-04-05

Somehow, I think this is intended for "Adult use" ;) Not child abuse.

jumb5150 (author)frankie05172012-04-27

You got that right!!

Innuendo much.

Physical Assault: for when good parenting is just too much work.

groundupart (author)2012-03-23

Oh man I just had flashbacks of King of the Hill "Paddlin' Peg." I think spanking is still a relevant punishment. I only got a handfull when I was a child and only after other methods such as restriction and grounding didn't work. People are too sensitive these days, you need a couple calluses on your butt as a kid!

Pfarmkid (author)groundupart2012-03-30

sadly still a kid. this is an amazing instructable just i don't like the use

unless i am holding it

jumb5150 (author)groundupart2012-03-26

I agree. Most kids these days have no sense of discipline.

yapoyo (author)2012-03-20

i dont have an epilog

jumb5150 (author)yapoyo2012-03-20

any other CO2 laser will do

yapoyo (author)jumb51502012-03-28

no i meant i dont have a laser cutter can i use an x acto

GASSYPOOTS (author)2012-03-26

my dad made me pick my piece of metal after i took my shoes off >_> btw how is this a prank?????????????

jumb5150 (author)GASSYPOOTS2012-03-27

because these can be made as gag presents.

Lot's of discussion tabout the legality of spanking children, which is entirely fair, but no one's mentioned that ACRYLIC is not a suitable material for spamking implements, it breaks too easily and can shatter leaving sharp shards, and you REALLY don't want that. The Laser should be able to cut other materials though, Rubber? Leather? you'd need to laminate 3 or 5 layers of the 3mm ply which seems common, but it's possible to do reliably.

PLEASE don't use Acrylic, or if you must, be prepared for the consequences. Cut's and splinters aren't fun and could be expensive.

jumb5150 (author)Dream Dragon2012-03-27

This paddle is thick. It has 3 layers 2 x 1/4" and an 1/8" middle layer. If you break this paddle on someone clearly you are trying to beat them to death with it. I suggest a different tool. This thing has been tested and it will not break with normal use.

I have been BAD!!! Do you make house calls? ;)

jumb5150 (author)BunnyGrrl692012-03-20

It depends on your location but I can ship it to you anywhere. Of course, personal drop shipping is xtra ;-)

BunnyGrrl69 (author)jumb51502012-03-20

Would the personal drop shipping come with a demonstration on how to use the paddle?

mrmerino (author)2012-03-19

Not mentioning The Simpsons? That's a Paddlin'.
