What's in this paddle?:
- Cherry: A domestic wood from Eastern USA and Canada that is usually considered to be in the same class as mahogany for usage in the United States. It is strong and fairly durable. The heartwood is light salmon to reddish-tan in color when freshly cut, but cherry is very photosensitive and dramatically darkens over the course of its life to a rich reddish-brown with exposure to air and sunlight.
- Curly Maple: Maple trees are a popular, fast growing decorative tree from Eastern USA and Canada. Figured maple contains distorted wood fibers that appear in an undulating chatoyant pattern that resembles wavy, curly lines.
