quietwater bent shaft paddle kits

Our kits are made up of four parts - the wood, the liquids (fiberglass cloth is included), the form, and the tools. Each kit also includes a DVD demonstrating the steps in making a paddle, as well as the thought process, and a few things to embrace or avoid. From there you can go on and form your own perspective. Each kit is a custom package based on what you want to have for your paddle making project. Some DIY'ers already have the tools and just need the form, wood, and liquids. Others have nothing or are buying it as a gift. So there is a good bit of flexibility involved. Usually a few phone calls or emails go back and forth just to make sure the kit contains what Santa, the gift buyer, or the DIY paddle maker wants. Here are the kit prices. The prices change for each order depending on what each individual order contains.

You Supply:
If you buy the form as part of the kit you are pretty much set.
If you opt not to buy the form then you need to supply weights of some sort and or clamps, OR
something else that will work to weight down the wood strips while the epoxy dries.
