My family loves to canoe. It is my dad’s favorite hobby. For Christmas a few years ago I made him a paddle. It would not be very fun to use because it weighs so much; however, my dad cherishes it a good bit. It mainly serves as decoration in the house. The woods consist of poplar shaft, walnut, and maple.

Great looking paddle and I can see why your Dad would cherish it. Beautiful work.

How much does it weigh in at? I made a cherry & ash paddle for Chris’ solo canoe but it’s a beast that weighs in at 3 lbs.
