My wife wanted a paddle for when she came canoeing. The ones I have are too long for her so I decided to make one. I wood burnt some stuff on there for her. Turn out pretty nice. I didn’t bother to fibreglass the blade as she wont be using that much.

Good thing she won’t use it much. Those beautiful art works might wash away!! Nice work. We’ll trust you that it has a handle; just this one time ;-)

Very cool paddle. Never seen one built like that. It would be nice to see a profile view of the blade. I’m wondering how thick it is. I too would like to see the handle of this beauty. Thanks for sharing this creation.

I’m a canoer, that’s the kind of paddle I thought of. Very nice looking paddle. Maybe someday I’ll try to make a paddle. Right now I have a bending branches that I’m happy with.

That’s nice clean work. I’m sure she must have been pleased with it.
