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 shows finished oars. Once Terry Learned has completed turning the oars (see Turning Oars 067), Paul Hanneman cuts off the headstock end with a saber saw and then completes the finish sanding of the entire oar. Finally, using a mix of oil-based stain and turpentine, he applies a finish and burns the Cape Kiwanda logo into the blade.
