Rough Parts Glued Up - SUP Paddle
Speaking of making SUP Surfing Paddles, here is the raw version of the one I'm making. So Charlie is not making the paddle - these pictures were of him cutting the shaft stock for the one he is building. But cutting the shaft pieces (you want to glue them up so they have more strength than just a single piece) and making sure they are near the final diameter (so you don't spend all your time sanding away the excess wood) are the first steps. Here is the shaft all glued up. A paddle handle (not sure if it'll go on this paddle or not - we figured out another way to make a handle out of the excess shaft material) is in the last picture. Work for next week - maybe gluing up the paddle face.
