I have really kept up with the paddle progress but I have been
working on it when the weather was bad or I wanted a break from the kayak.
The final stage sanding with some 200 grit paper.
And then finally some Tung-oil to seal the surface, I am pretty
happy with it.
Next up Oiling the frame..

Hi Rob, looks good your paddle. Did you make it of pine and what weight did the paddle end up at?
I made my pagaj of pine and at first it was very heavy (more than 1.5 kg), so I planed it until I didn't dare to plane it any more and the weight came down to about 1.2 kg...but I've heard of paddles that is at about 7-800 gr...I wonder how those guys do...?
