The Turning Oars collection features a series of photographs depicting the process of creating oars for Cape Kiwanda Wood Products of Pacific City by partners Paul Hanneman and Terry Learned. To look at the process chronologically, view the images in numerical order (Turning Oars 001 — Turning Oars 072). Terry Learned provided the description for this image.
This photo provides a better view of the contour shape of the handle grip. Here, Terry Learned continues using a belt sander to remove rough surfaces from the shaft of the oar blank as he slowly walks down following the machine. The technique involves holding the sander on the wood as the oar turns.
