Canoe Paddle Making with Marc Ornstein. #226-0817. 2 days. Aug. 17-18.

There is nothing like being out in your canoe using a paddle you made yourself. You’ll love the feel of it knifing through the water. Come create a traditional Otter tail or Beaver tail paddle made from Ash (Cherry wood can also be used for an additional fee). Learn about selecting the wood, understanding how to work with the grain, and sizing and shaping the handle, shaft and blade. You will be working with traditional hand tools like the spoke shave, files, and planes. So enjoy this class as you sit in the sunshine crafting your paddle. It is sure to become one of your prized possessions!

Fee = $170 + materials ($40-60).
