Thanks Lew, I doubt they were mine on Pinterest unless someone else shared them there.  I am really looking forward to the day that can make my own oars and not have to buy them though.

I imagine oars are one of those things that look deceivingly easy to make but in reality not so much.

Sharp looking paddles, Robert! Having spent countless hours in canoes, I'd just like to point out that there IS a difference..... oars are used in rowboats!

I haven't tried yet.  I am pretty sure I don't have the equipment to form one, yet.

Oars are typically longer, and heavier, ride in an attached oarlock, and have a round (cylindrical) handle at the end. They are used in pairs, a left and a right. The paddle is lighter in weight, and is held with BOTH hands, hence the cross-wise grip. As for making your own, use waterproof glue for the blank, then all you really need is a sharp knife, although a spokeshave is safer. A cherry spine with cedar sides makes a good-looking paddle!

Robert, the work is fantastic! We may have to call on you to create our Patriot Woodworker Logo for events!

I'd love to see your work also in our Gallery http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/gallery/

You can create your own Album, and keep a running collection of your work showcased. Always share your work in forums so we can gloat over it, but you can also share your prize work in your own album. Great work man, very cool.

Thank you John.  I would be honored, while I have the laser running this weekend I will try a test burn of the logo and see how it looks.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
