Luc P's New Carvings

Blog reader & contributor, Luc Poitras has sent more pics in of his paddle creations...

Here's a set of sorts made from cedar. The two smaller ones were carved for his lucky grandson. The off-white coloured paddle is from spalted maple



Here's a beauty carved from Tamarack that Luc carved with just a crooked knife. Hoping I'll be able to source out a Tamarack log this summer and try to carve a similar one.


Lastly, Luc's wife found an old, 70" paddle at a garage sale. It looks to be a roughly carved blade meant for hard use. Luc mentioned it is likely birch but the paint and varnish job on the blade has really covered up the grain pattern.

Wow, I think it would be really cool to learn how to make your own canoe paddles. We go canoeing a lot when we go up to Minnesota and maybe this year we could try making some of our own. It looks like there are different types you can make! http://mauipaddlesports.com
