First attempt at making a paddle was mainly an exercise in working wood like this with hand tools. I used scrap white oak I had on hand and glued pieces together. Used spar urethane to finish

What you will need

5' white oak, 1" thick


How to do this project


Cut out shape with bandsaw or jigsaw and shape with hand shaping tools like planes and spokeshave spi
