Explore the different ways wooden paddles are made, then work on making a laminated, bent or straight shaft paddle. We supply the wood and you will glue the blade, shaft, and grip on the first day. On day two, we will shape and work on sanding each paddle. You’ll have to do some work at home, including final sanding and varnishing.
