I needed a new paddle for my kayak. Well I thought I would give a wooden one a try. It is made from Alder maple and cedar. It is a lot heavier than I thought it would be that’s why I am calling it an attempt I like the look but the weight will kill me on long trips. there are 3 coats of spar varnish and all the knots and tips of the blades are covered in epoxy. It will get its use this summer for sure but I will probably have to remake it. Shaped with all hand tools which makes this monster a labor of love.
