A couple of new paddles are also underway. Both are like this one, a hybrid cedar/hardwood with 4 oz. fiberglass over the blade and up the shaft. Cedar blade and shaft core, cherry shaft facings and grip. As the cedar blade is very soft and fragile around the edges, there is a band of epoxy that is applied. This is how the paddle looks before the fiberglass work.
Oh, and that canoe behind is the Chestnut Cruiser, a "Cronje" getting 2 coats of interior varnish.
