Making the oars

This is a short, scruffy video about the making of our oars. It is not for beginners as it makes several assumptions about basic woodworking techniques. I used several tools that may not be familiar to beginners such as Chalk Line (for marking a perfectly straight 14ft cut line), Spar Gauge, Power Plane, Belt Sander and Palm Sander … I recommend Google and YouTube for detailed advice about these. Enjoy!
