I've been making my own Greenland style paddle for a while now but having some strips of cut off timber from other projects gave me the idea of making a laminated paddle so here it is , Radiata pine and Salle wattle







Come out heavier than the paddles I usually make from pine studs but still lighter than the ones you buy

Would this type paddle be a good choice for me? Fishing, short day trips, heavy load (mostly me), in a 13', 35" beam skiff. It looks nice and might be fun to build.
