Ottertail Canoe Paddle


Laminated from western red cedar with a strip of hardwood down the middle for added stiffness and strength. Hardwood centre strips are usually either ash or cherry, walnut available at a small extra cost.  These paddles have been selling very well lately. More photos coming soon. 


Roughly a 5.5"  to 5.75" X 26" blade and in a variety of lengths between 54 and 60 inches.  Actual sizes may vary by a quarter inch or more ue to the fact each one is individually handmade. 

Photos are from some recently built paddles. No two will be identical as they are all handbuilt in our home based woodshop.
