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 image, the machine has started to carve wood away from the top of the blade. Terry Learned has moved to the other side of the machine, where he continues to sand the shaft. Learned explains that eventually he will sand “the big lobe of the blade with the sander on this side because there are too many belts on the other side to get back there and do it.”
