We thrive on versatility and unique designs for our canoe, kayak, and SUP paddles. While our penchant is for functional water paddles, we have also created many display paddles for art museums, restaurants, hotels, YMCA's, personal home decor, weddings, and military awards. We've done paddles in many sizes and blades of several shapes and widths. We've done solid paddles constructed of a single piece of lumber, and we've done laminated paddles with over 20 different wood species. In total, we've used over 100 different woods types, ranging from commonly used domestic species like cherry, walnut, and maple, to less commonly used exotic species and figured woods such as cocobolo, bloodwood, pommele sapele, redheart, and zebrawood. None of this information is meant as a limitation, however, so get creative and work us through what you're thinking!
