About your host

I have been building canoes since 1993, and have run canoe building holidays at Birchcanoes for about 15 years. Plenty of our canoe building guests have opted to make paddles too, and we thought our Airbnb guests might like this option too.

What we’ll do

We will measure you up for a paddle, and draw an outline using my home-made template. I will cut out the paddle blank from a piece of timber, and show you how to use the various tools to shape and complete your paddle. You will be using a variety of hand tools, and I will give you as much ( or as little) help as you feel you need. You will complete the paddle and take it home with you at the end…

What else you should know

You will need to wear clothes that you are comfortable to work in. We will be in an open fronted lean-to for most of the work, so wrap up warm if it is winter. We will stop for tea and coffee etc.

What I’ll provide

Transportation
Car
Equipment
Tools and safety wear The wood ( we mostly use spruce but other timbers are available)

What to bring

Warm work-wear, but I will provide any safety wear you may need
