Here's My Woodworking!

Here are some photos of a few canoe paddles I made.

I'm a veterinarian and novice woodworker and am enjoying moving my skills from exclusively power tools to more hand tools. The paddles are all made and finished to be used on the water. I got started with a strip built canoe and now make these as gifts and donations for fundraisers.

These paddles are all made from mostly scraps around my shop and from some furniture makers I know. Most of the cedar, heart pine, and cypress is reclaimed wood from old barns around Lake Murray, South Carolina.
