I had to make a paddle-making decision!
Now that I knew how to build a paddle, and how easy it could be, I had a decision to make. Should I go into business making paddles or teach others how it's done?
Well, you know what I chose to do. I took what I learned and simplified stand up paddle buildling into 10 simple steps and illustrated the process with clear and concise drawings. Now they're all yours.
If I can do it, so can you.
Prior to building paddles, the extent of my woodworking background. was that silly wooden clipboard that I made in woodshop in middle-school. My toolbox is just like yours. It has the typical stuff like screwdrivers, a hammer, a saw, and sandpaper. No fancy wood tools. Just the basics.
I don't have a woodshop.
In fact, my paddle making was done on the balcony of my condo up on the 4th floor of my building. All I needed was simple tools and some wood that I had stashed somewhere.
