It's a great feeling to paddle a canoe using a paddle you made from scratch with your own hands. You get a sense of pride, accomplishment and independence propelling a craft with your own custom designed solid wood paddle. There are many blade and grip shapes to choose from and you can personalize your paddle with a painted or burned in design. Walt Sepic has been working with wood and paddling for nearly 40 years and is looking forward to helping you make a paddle you'll be proud of.
