about

Making a Bent Shaft Laminated Canoe Paddle is all about the wood, materials, tools, and attitude you need to make your own paddle.  This is a project well within reach of anyone looking for a DIY project that keeps them close to canoeing. Jeff goes through the preparatory steps if you want to do your own ripping of the shaft strips and blade blanks. He also covers making a form to shape the shaft as well as all the steps to add a handle, the blade and fiberglass.  Working with hand tools and shaping a paddle that you will soon be using on the water is a great way to break with our digital world and reconnect with our hands and eyes and the simple pleasures of working with wood in a more analog world. This can be a complete DIY project, which some prefer, or it can be assembling the pre-cut pieces and materials from a kit that quietwater sells as well. Either way, the paddle maker has lots of choices and the chance to make a one-of-a-kind paddle.
