Paddle I carved out of red cedar. I used a skillsaw to notch out the shaft. The rest was done with a hand plane, a spokeshave and a rasp. I finished it with tung oil and it looks great. Can’t wait to try it out on the water this summer.

Welcome to LumberJocks
Is cedar strong enough for a paddle?

Thanks! It should be strong enough for deep water paddling, but if it gets shallow and I start to hit rocks, then it will take toll.
This was more or less a practice for a hardwood paddle I would like to carve.

Nice!!! They sell pre-made copper protector ends with nails at some marinas. Will save the end from damage.
