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.
Terry Learned made some modifications to the oar-making machine. This image provides a close-up view of the pattern for the oar hand grip. Learned cut the pattern off at an angle and screwed some metal underneath it so he can make it move up and back, as well as in and out. A pin, which is connected to the cutting head, rides along this pattern.
