Well, I've started in on a new challenge. I'm making a change for a semester of teaching from cedar-strip canoe building to paddle making. I'm going to be offering a class in how to build you own single-bladed canoe paddle, double-bladed canoe or kayak paddle, Greenland style "stick" paddle or, for those adventurous sorts, oars. I've built them all before, but haven't taught a class on the subject, so this should be an interesting challenge.
Sign-up for classes was last Saturday morning and I was amazed to not only fill the class, but wind up with two more students for a total of 12.
I've got a bit of teaching material to put together before next weekend, but otherwise I'm prepared.
Here's looking forward to the mayhem and posting on paddles for a bit!
