Kayak Paddle Plans

Plans for building your own feathered kayak paddle.

Making your own paddle is a fun way to upgrade your equipment. It is a fairly quick project. You should be able to make one in a couple weekends. The paddle I make does require a bandsaw, but the technique I describe can be adapted to hand tools.

 Kayak Plans


Guillemot Kayaks has been offering complete plans and instructions for building high performance wooden kayaks since 1993. Each kayak plan includes all the forms drawn out at full size and individually. No copying or lofting is required, just glue the plans to your form material and cut out around the lines. Each plan is printed out as an original to minimize any chance of errors being introduced in the reproduction process.
