"The Tip Look"
I should mention that the plans we are using are those of Chuck Holst and can be found for easy download at www.quajausa.org site. An excellent site for Greenland style paddling information.
I was wondering how solid the tips would be anchored to the ends of the paddle blade using our dowel attachment with epoxy. It was solid and planed very nicely considering the much harder Wenge wood tips.
Soon the ends will be rounded and the sanding and rasping will allow the paddle to get its familiar Greenland look and that rich organic feeling of holding a made at home paddling device. lol.
