  No.3 Stanley plane, block plane
  Posted by: hodtay on Nov-11-12 11:21 AM (EST)

I've carved many Greenland paddles, about 75. I use a vintage Stanley No.3 smooth plane after I band saw the blank to shape the paddle. I used to use a low-angle block plane for this but the No. 3 is easier on my hands. I set the iron proud of the sole and hold the plane at an angle to hog off material. I use the low-angle block plane to shape the leading edges of the blade and achieve the paddle's final shape.
