Lightweight Kayak Paddle from a Reclaimed Wooden Board

I needed a paddle for the kayak I’m building and I also needed a new video so that’s this video and next I’ll try and finish the kayak.

You can find Nick Schade’s plans for a paddle here

Also Nick has a series on making a paddle with much more detail than I’ve shown, you can find that here

As always I’m happy to answer any questions.

  1. Does water based glue set properly without access to air? Maybe shrink wrapping the first joint is what caused it to fail?

  2. Commenting to feed the algorithm. As usual a great video. Thanks for doing what you do!

  3. I did enjoy it, looks fantastic! I love the way you work and how you add extra details to your projects.

  4. I don't understand why you used the scarf joint could you explain more. Seems to me you could cut the skew on one of your tapered ends instead of in the middle of the handle. Trees grown round not square after all so side grain is side grain.

  5. I knew I'd like the video when I clicked on it. I just didn't know I'd like it this much! Well done. I want one now!

  6. This kayak, seat and paddle are works of art! If the rain doesn't stop you might have to start on Noah's Ark V2.0.

  7. Damn! What a glow-up at the end. Absolutely love the fiber glassing process, so cool

  8. surprised you didnt add a couple of dowels into the scarf joint. opportunity for accent color and strength, I think.

  9. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  10. The knowledge I have gained from watching your channel is crazy. Your a natural with what you can do with wood and metal while staying humble is a beautiful trait to have.Thanks for sharing what you do and canโ€™t wait to see this amazing kayak hit the water.

  11. At this point, I can almost picture Pask building his own vintage glider out of wood and fiberglass. Impressive craftmanship.

  12. I worked for a boat building company, and we had a lot of lead weights around the shop that we used for compression clamps. I did a lot of research on the dangers of lead and had my assistant paint all of the lead weights yellow. This served as a barrier to prevent the workers from unintentionally ingesting lead. No, they weren't licking the lead, but they were eating and drinking with lead on their fingers. This, even in small amounts, is cumulative and our bodies incorporate the lead in our bones. Please be careful when working with lead. The effects are nor easily reversible. lead is sweet, the Romans used it to sweeten their wine with terrible results. You are probably aware of the horrors of the recent incident in the USA where lead pipes poisoned an entire generation of children. And there was a good reason that lead was removed from petrol worldwide. lead is very bad for you, don't touch it.

  13. Western red is very oily wood. Cleaning it with acetone is necessary for a good bond with wood glue.

  14. Do wear a respirator rated for organics when you are making and working with most two part compounds. The SDS sheets for the particular product may highlight why you want to shield your lungs from the specific organic.

  15. Absolutely fantastic. I do not know any one who takes so much effort to make things functional and beautiful. Keep them coming. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

  16. always a joy to watch, the amount of techniques employed in this kayak series absolutely does my head in but in a good way lol!

  17. This paddle looks great! Congrats on 1 mil subs, and good luck finishing the kayak ๐Ÿ˜€
