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 photo, Terry Learned has turned the oar over to work on the other side. A handle set in the wheel is visible near the bottom of the photo. Learned explains that he turns the handle "a little bit to get it from flat to diamond shape. It’s a freehand deal and it’s by sight. I do have some marks up here on the end, and I watch those to start with.”
