Yup, winter has set in. I didn't get a chance to paddle my newly made w/c canoe, but I made 3 new paddles -those hanging in this shot -one ottertail and two Avery (one each of white ash and black cherry). While varnishing those, I also refinished 6 older ones, many of which have been used by a variety of outdoor ed. students on 9 day trips in Shield country, so were due. Some can be seen in this photo.
