Finally back to carving

It's been a while but I'm finally back into the actual paddle making part of this blog. Recently picked up some nice lumber from Century Mill including some curly cherry, basswood, yellow birch, some ash, and for the first time, some sassafras. I've been staying up late excitedly planning out my upcoming paddle carving attempts in our new home's basement (a.k.a. man cave).

New lumber: Cherry, Yellow Birch, Sassafras, Ash, Curly Cherry

I'm planning this next batch to be primarily recreations of some of the historic paddles from the Northeast coast - Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, etc. More on some of the upcoming designs in future posts.
