Paddle – Part 5

12 05 2015

I added some material to the sides (more cherry) and then just did a jig saw cut and started sanding.  I was a bit concerned about how to shape the shaft, since it seems that most people do that on a routing table and I don’t have one, but I found that an angle grinder with a 60 grit sanding pad does the job quite nicely.  After working my way down to a 220 grit sander and then some hand sanding… I’m ready for fiberglass.

The paddle weighs exactly 2 lbs right now.  I’m fine with that.  The glass and finish won’t add more than another pound.  In hind sight, I should have used cedar instead of hard maple.  I also should not have ordered the Chicken Shawarma on Sunday night.  Long story…
