Paddle update!

Got a bit excited tonight and was feeling like I could get some work done on the paddle. I headed over and rented a belt sander from home depot and just tried it out. Things went pretty good but I’m not moving enough material at this point. I’m going to try to track down a drawknife again and failing that I’ll just bit the bullet and buy one.
Here’s the only picture that would really show anything. But you can see what’s happening.


To get that rounded shape I want I’ll have to get the drawknife and remove wood in strips. When I get to that stage I’ll either rent another sander with a fine grit sandpaper on it to make it smooth, or sand it by hand with progressively finer sand paper.
