I made these about 5 years ago before I really go into the finer sides of woodworking but paddle making came up on one of the lists so I’m adding them for those who might want to make a set.
They were made from 1/4 thick ash planed down to 1/6 after joined. I then added Dynel fabric which has a very high abrasion resistance and swells in the resin. After the tips were shaped I put the venerr caps on, signed and put a quote on them, then covered with 2-oz plain weave glassed over everything.
I used a few 1/8 PVC plastic jigs and the router to do a lot of he shaping.
