Elspeth Soper's Alder Paddle

Elspeth Soper has recently documented her experience carving a Cree style paddle from a log of Alder. Her photo rich post shows all the steps and details of the carving process resulting in a lovely,  functional user.

Elspeth's blog also documents her trips to Northern Quebec where she got to witness modern Cree culture up close. A few years back, she completed a wood canvas canoe built in the style of John Kawapit. Her new paddle is a great match!
