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.
In this photo, Learned explains that “the machine is doing its own thing. You can see chips flying away from it—spinning away.” The follower arrest has not been engaged yet and is not visible in this image; Learned will secure it once the machine moves down to where he can safely put it on the oar. Part of the pattern for the handle is visible in the lower right corner of the photo.
