Re: Plans for Oars

Posted by Charlie on Jan 22, 2008

Spoon blade oars are made like any other oar with one excepton. The spoon blades have to be carved out of a block of wood. Usually the back is roughed out with a drawknife and the front hollowed out with a special spokeshave. If I were you I'd make oars with a normal profile. Nothing will make an 8' pram go fast. The waterline is too short.
