||Jeff has been building with hand tools and wood for years and years. This intersection of tools and wood is a passion and a pleasure that has stayed with him for longer than he wants to think about. Starting as a guide in the Boundary Waters and followed by years of guiding on the Rogue River in Oregon and the Main and Middle Fork of the Salmon in Idaho, Jeff has been lucky enough to float and paddle many world class watery places.
There are good things laying on a shelf just waiting for purchase, but there are better things in your head just waiting to be built with your hands. Like a paddle. Building your own paddle allows for shaft length, handle dimensions, and blade size to fit what the paddler wants. And that's just for starters. The fun stuff like wood type, resin color, and blade profile invite unique and fun options for a DIY builder to indulge. In life there's an easy way and a hard way. The same rules apply in the DIY maker world. In this presentation, Jeff shows and shares some of the tips and tricks he has picked up over his years of paddle building that just might make your DIY paddle project more enjoyable.
