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 shows the tailstock (located at the top of the image) on the oar lathe. The tailstock is a special part of the machine. It has an adjustable round point and a sharp edge around the outside. The wheel handle on the back of the tailstock is adjustable so that it can be cranked in and out to secure the oar blank in place. Part of the bed of the oar lathe can also be seen. The bed accommodates up to 10 half-foot oars.
