Updated for 2023, these plans are designed to be used with our FREE Greenland Paddle building course. This 18-page downloadable PDF plan set covers the tools you'll need, wood selection, paddle sizing information and shaping details, along with step-by-step instructions that complement those in the video course.
The overall building system I use is fast, easy, and reproducible even by people without a lot of woodworking skill. The shaping comes from almost 20 years of experience paddling with and teaching people to build thousands of Greenland paddles.
New in this version are instructions for laminating a paddle, and for surveying a paddle for serious homebuilders and professionals.
I hope you enjoy the plans, thanks for supporting Cape Falcon Kayak!
New in this version are instructions for laminating a paddle, and for surveying a paddle for serious homebuilders and professionals. Your first paddle will probably take a day to complete, and subsequent paddles will take about 4 hours to build.
