Share 'I am looking for a light wood to make oars.'
I have made several sets of oars using fir. Usually they are heavier than I would like. Once I used basswood which is marginally lighter. Has anyone tried cedar? Usually I split a 2x4 and laminate strips of cherry and maple for a nice colorful blade. The leathers would protect cedar from the oarlocks. Any ideas?
