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 photograph, Terry Learned secures one of the oar blanks in the tailstock, making certain it is right in the center of the shaft. As Learned explains, “You have to look at the blank and get it perfectly centered, otherwise it’s in there and goes egg shape—wobble, wobble—you’ll end up with a flat side on the oar.”
