Re: cart before the horse

Just thought...Consider how wide you want your blade early. I wasted material by following the book too closely. I stacked and glued in this order Walnut_Poplar_Maple_Poplar_Walnut. The problem was when joined with the 1.5 inch wide shaft the paddle was really wide. I was over 10 inches wide with both sides of the blade glued on. So i ended up cutting off the outer strip of walnut and a lot of the outer Poplar. I dont have the final measurements here but I think it was about 20 inches long and the widest part was about 8 inches.
