Default Decorative paddles

Have been playing with creating decorative paddles to hang on the wall. Lots of different wildlife designs floating around in my head. Don't have Scott's painting abilities, so just have to stick to stain..

That is true. Living in northern Minnesota, I tend to have woods and water on the brain..
Thanks.

Nice work! They would be a good addition to hunting, fishing or lake cabins.
I have several old gun stocks that I would like to do something similar with.

Those are GREAT! I love it, may I use that idea down here in FL?
Just so I'd know how to price them, stained vs painted. Scott, what's your painting fee on something like that. LOL

I have been thinking about pulling kitchen cabinet doors and doing something. I haven't passed it by the wife yet though.

Did you buy paddles, than carve them, or do a 2 sided carve to make the entire thing? people want to know..

HaHa. Not much of a story. I wanted to try my hand at modeling something in Aspire (2 rail sweep and vectors), so I chose a paddle (as I had been given a lasered one as a gift). These were made single sided from a 1x6x36" piece of whatever I had laying around. Used a 1/2" end and ball nose for the paddle itself, 1/16 TBN for lake scene.

Once I had the paddle model created, it was just a matter of adding text, clipart or models from Design and Make. BTW, there is a paddle in their model clipart..

Add acrylic paint or stain and lacquer. See, not much of a story.
