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 shapes the handle of the oar using a pattern as illustrated in this image. He leaves a bit of extra wood at the end of the handle at this stage in the process; it is removed at a later point. The cutter head moves down the oar handle with the follower arrest helping to steady it. Soon after this step, Learned will begin sanding the handle of the oar behind the cutter head.
