Kayak & Canoe Paddles

In this two-day workshop, participants will learn the proper selection of appropriate species of wood, learn basic identification of some softwoods and hardwoods, and construct a laminated canoe or kayak paddle to their specific dimensions. Day one will include the wood selection, sorting and glue up. Day two will focus on the shaping and edging of the handles and blades. Students will leave with a mostly finished ‘blank’ that with a little more sanding and shaping will be ready to finish and use in open water or whitewater paddling.
