Wow, I thought working on old canoes was a slippery slope but carving paddles was like falling off a cliff. After spending up to a year restoring old canoes being able to make a paddle in one day was instantly gratifying but I couldn't stop. So for the last couple of weeks my 1910 OT double gunwale, that I am trying to restore in time to bring to assembly, has been languishing in the shop while I satisfied this new passion. After 6 paddles I cooled down on that enough to get back to the boat but here are some photos of the paddles. Thank you Murat, meeting you at Killbear inspired me to get started and your web site is wonderful. Left to right the wood and weight is, cherry 745g, sassafras 528g, Honduran mahogany 863g, tiger maple 841g, walnut 627g.
