Tools for Paddle Building

Every project has its tools. Some are required and some make the job easier. Three tools I come back to over and over are the plane, the spokeshave, and scrapers. See options two and three in the store for tool purchase options. All are shown in the picture below. A fourth tool I need to add is a Surform. Most often this is a sheetrocking tool, but it works great on soft wood like cedar and basswood. While I was surprised on first use, I now turn to it as often as my plane or spokeshave. A shaping tool well worth adding.
