Since reading Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman I wanted to make a canoe paddle for myself. I started with some scrap cedar from my kitchen table project and some ash and walnut wood that was left over from another project. I laminated them together with some dowels for strength. I then took out the hand tools and shaped the paddle. A very fun project using the spoke shave was great got lots of time learning about hand tools I cant wait to make another one. I did about 10 coats of spar varnish and it looks great the lighting in the pictures does not due it justice.
