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 image provides a close-up view of the wedge shape of the oar blank situated in the headstock. With the centering pin, the oar blank will not fly out even if the fit into the metal is not perfectly tight. Some parts were missing when Paul Hanneman and Terry Learned purchased the machine, forcing them to be creative. For example, Learned found the large iron wheel seen here and welded the headstock to it.
