quietwater paddle building kit prices

Remember that a quietwater paddles kit contains enough materials for two paddles. Not one. Two paddles.
pdf version of instruction manual + numerous video tutorials are included.
Note: Prices subject to change as material costs change.
USD$185.00 for a standard canoe paddle kit, available from our store. Good for building TWO paddles. Shipping is US$35 for continental US destinations. Give quietwater a call at 608-432-0198 to arrange shipping outside the lower 48.

What do you need to supply? Tools. Hand tools.

There's no need for anything electric to build a quietwater paddle, however if you want to use electric tools they'll work.
Option 2 of our kit includes everything in Option 1 PLUS a spokeshave, scraper set, and 2 Surform tools

I have really started to like a Surform. Same shape as a plane, but with teeth like a rasp.

I'm a big fan of 3M Sandblaster paper (they don't sponsor me). I'm convinced that after using both this brand and other brands that Sandblaster, somehow, is vastly more effective and longer lasting than other brands. Regardless of brand, cleaning the paper (brushing the surface) makes for longer lasting sandpaper.

Finally, there are custom options available. If you want a different look to your paddle, we have redwood and walnut strips. We also make two and three piece blades and multi-piece handles.
