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.
The bottom end of the hand grip is visible in the middle of this photo as the machine continues to carve it. Terry Learned explains that he does this very slowly so that he doesn’t shave too much wood off at this point in the process.
