When working with natural products, we try our best to minimize waste. All of the wood used in the Bali are re-purposed "leftovers" from previous designs. As the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure!

What's in this paddle? Believe it or not, this paddle is made up almost entirely of different toned walnut....plus 2 bonus thin strips of wenge!:
- Walnut: The walnut tree grows in Mid and Eastern United States and Canada. The heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Its color can also have a grey, purple, or reddish cast.
- Wenge: The wenge tree originates in central Africa. Heartwood is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black.
