Paddle Carving

by Steve on June 15, 2010

I’ve also been working on a pair of walnut paddles to match Cheemaun #2.  Carved by hand from solid 5/4″ boards (I roughed out the blanks with various power tools but all the final work was done carefully by hand). Proponents of building laminated paddles point out that there’s a lot of waste when cutting a one-piece paddle blank from an expensive board but the drops I have left from these two will provide the decks and thwarts for another boat.
