Looking at back issues of Wooden Canoe, I see "A Router Fixture for Machining Canoe Paddles," Issue 111, June 2002. Since I'm suffering from similar aches & pains as the Author (Arnie Spielbauer), I'm very intrigued. ("What a drag it is, getting old".... who sung that?) Not sure I want to dedicate a whole table for this effort... my shop is not dedicated to paddle-making... but I'm thinking about developing the idea to suit the paddle-making that I do. Has anybody worked with this concept? Figured out any improvements? Or is it already perfect? As much as I enjoy the "sherf" of my spoke shaves (it's a lot like the "sherf" of a paddle in the water....), the bursitis in my shoulder is screaming for Light Duty... The Luddite in me may have to take a Temporary Medical Deferment. Oh... puppy poop!
