I'm doing what a few on this board have done in the past -- joining two cheap wooden canoe paddles to create a kayak paddle. However, I couldn't find in anybody's post the technique to getting the scarf cuts just right so that they join well. I'll be feathering the blade about 30 - 40 degrees, so that will have to be the offset for the shafts as I cut them. How do you cut the shafts so they they join cleanly? Do you build something around the shaft so that it slides through a table saw? If so, what? Lastly, has anybody put these paddles to the test? How did they come out? I'm a whitewater boater so I'm not expecting it to be strong enough, but am hoping to be pleasantly surprised. I'll be fiberglassing the entire paddle, shaft and all, and hoping for the best. Can somebody please help me? Thanks!
