A cold rainy day streaks by my window. Not so much fun outside, but my shop is dry and warmish. This series of books springs from the shop time I have happily spent at a workbench shaping wood, sometimes on one of those rainy days when my motivation leans toward something with a roof overhead. Hopefully, these guide books are what you are looking for to help you arrive at the size, style, and look that you’re after in a canoe or paddleboard paddle. Equal parts inspiration and instruction, each of the guide books works through building your own ‘one of a kind’ paddle.
