Okay not so long this time on posting Part IV of building the canoe paddle. We are getting closer to the end of this video series. In this part I will work on shaping the grip and the final shape of the shaft as well as the balance.

Weight was an issue that was brought up to me in a PM. It was recomended that a paddle should weigh no more than a beer. My Wal-Mart paddle weighs in at 22 ounces and so does a bottle of beer. This paddle weighs in at 31 ounces, but with the wider blade that to me is accetable.

Once again here is the update as well as all of the previous videos.

I'm going to bring this up to the top before I head out of here and go to the ball game.

Those are fluid ounces btw--but better to drink than the weight type.:)

I wish I could plane by hand that fast, say what is that squeaky music in the background.

been following the series, just haven't commented yet. I am about to build some oars.

Just need a sharp blade and a weather eye on your other appendages, oh and the FF button helps also. ;)
