Francois Rothan recently sent me some pics of two Malecite style paddles made for a client decorated with custom chip-carving. One is made from cedar and the other from maple. More of Francois' beautiful paddles and bark canoes can be found on his site, birchbarkcanoes.blogspot.com
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
