Woodworkers Journal "Northwoods" Paddle template

Missed this last year, but the June 2015 issue of Woodworkers Journal featured a tutorial by Dan Cary entitled, "How to Make a Canoe Paddle - Summer Fun Project".

For the time being, the article still also appears online on their website, albeit under a different title. It showcases a paddle making tutorial at the North House Folk School by instructor, Mike Schelmeske. Along with a detailed photo sequence and a quick YouTube video, the article includes paddle plans for a basic beavertail blade and standard pear shape grip. This might be useful for any readers wanting to embark on their first paddle creation.

The paddle plans are available in *.pdf format and can be downloaded by clicking here
