    I am looking for any good plans for a basic canoe paddle that a group of Boy Scouts could make in a couple of days. Ages 10 - 13 yrs. The paddles should be simple and rugged, but easy to make. Anyone out there have any plans? Suggestions for handling group projects of this nature also appreciated.

    Check under the "Paddle Making" section of the Table of Contents here at the WCHA for several articles on paddle making. Also, if you want to drop me a note in the private message, I can e-mail an article that was in a woodworking magazine awhile back. As far as advice, patience and bandaids will be the order of the day.

    Good luck,

    Ric Altfather
