The second apprentice working on making an paddle

First the apprentice had to mark out the piece of ash he was going to use for the shaft for the paddle

Then cut out the paddle blades 

Once all the pieces with cut they had to be put through the planner thicknesser to get them to the correct size 

The make a start on making the shaft round by using the same method you use to make a round mast from a square piece of wood

Having cut the blades for the paddle leaving on a bit for cramping up which once the glue as set can then be cut to close to correct size to plane and shape the paddle.
