Fig 72 - Adney Paddles
Chris added his own interpretation by changing up the grip and adding a carved drip ring at the throat. The whole thing was then decorated and stained with oil and red ochre...nice!
Chris' beautiful paddle creation
Carved drip ring and feathered blade edges
It also turns out that Chris is planning to build a birch bark canoe and like myself, is starting out with a 3 foot model. Good luck on the build and here's hoping he'll send more pics of his creations for all of us to enjoy.
