Paddle maker and woodworker extraordinaire David Gendron of Au Nord du Nord Woodwork has been working on more creations. One of them consisted of repairing a broken shaft and splicing in a new grip of his wife's favourite paddle. David came up with a new custom grip design that looks marvelous and very functional...
New splice custom grip
He also carved a new paddle in Birch. It features a large blade with a wide handle and distinct spines on each end that balance the paddle nicely. David's use of bright colours with varnish make his paddles sparkle!
