Honestly, if you can Sharpen a Pencil
and use a hand saw, you can
build a stand up paddle!
You don't need a workshop, steam bender, or any expensive tools. All you need is some scrap wood and a couple of basic tools that you probably have rusting away in your toolbox. The only tool I had to get that I'd never used before building my first paddle was a small hand planer. It was like $7 at the local hardware store.
What will these plans allow you to do?
► You can finally design and create yoru own custom paddle!
► Shape a custom handle that fits your grip perfectly.
► Trim and shape the blade to ideal specifications for you.
► Create the precise amount of surface area you want on your blade.
► Build extra paddles for friends and family members for mere pennies.
► Discover the soul of a solid wood paddle.
► Refine yoru skills and start your own paddling-making business.
