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 three blades in the cutter head. Here Terry Learned polishes the seven-inch blades. Blades in this size aren't available for purchase, so Learned uses old planer blades from a planer mill and cuts them down to seven inches. Periodically, he sharpens the blades with a blade sharpener, but here he is “just dressing them up a little bit.”
