"The Making Of A Paddle"

What do kayakers do when they aren't kayaking? They "jerry-rig the next gadget", or make paddles. Neil hosted part two of his Greenland paddle making workshop of which I was able to participate in this Saturday afternoon with Sean and Dean. Very generous of Neil to give up his time and tools and home for this endeavour, and it was greatly appreciated. I feel a nice dinner coming soon.

The air has a bit of dust suspended and the light from the flash is reflecting of it. Looks like it is snowing inside. Only dust, dust in the basement. Great fun guys thanks for the opportunity.

fascinating. I sort of assumed this was how they were made, but was never positive.

will you be posting pictures of the shaping process?
