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.
