Drawshaving a Paddle at Trent University

As I walked around Trent University at the WCHA (Wooden Canoe Heritage Association) there were many tents and people making different wooden canoe related items. Here was a gentleman using a shaving horse to shave down a paddle he was working on. The shaving horse is ideal for holding wood so you can pull against it with a drawknife to make spindles and paddles.
