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).
This image provides a long shot of the oar-making machine. The Tillamook farmer who built the machine in 1935 and 1936 used Model T Ford gears everywhere in it, as well as wood pulleys and leather belts. A hacksaw, a file, some drills, and old bridge girders out of the Tillamook burn were used to make the bed.
