    2. Product description of Wooden Canoe Paddle 

    A brief overview of the Wooden Canoe Paddle and its unique features

    At Old Modern Handicrafts, each paddle is composed of both red cedar and mahogany and the care taken with the finish ensures a smooth and strong end product that will surely enhance your boating experience. The wood is hand-picked, the item handmade, and yes, ultimately hand sanded, these are paddles of which we are incredibly proud.

    What is it about a wooden paddle that has stood the test of time? Some argue that the biggest advantage of wood lies in its visual appeal; others tend to the feel of a wooden paddle, the options different woods afford, or the commitment to quality.

    Our canoe paddles are designed with a large or medium-sized head and can be custom-made to your preferences. The front features a concave shape that allows for a strong hold on the water, providing excellent propulsion and forward momentum. Made from western cedar and mahogany, these paddles offer a soft flex while maintaining stiffness for a solid connection to the water. The slightly rectangular shaft and lightweight design (around 700 grams) ensure a comfortable and efficient paddling experience. The hand-shaped handle fits nicely in your hand, enhancing comfort. With the rectangular paddle board, you can easily move the water without exerting excessive force.

    About Woodenboat USA™

    The story of time-honored traditions of boat building. 

    More than just watercraft, our wooden boats, kayaks and canoes represent connections to a legacy of craftsmanship and old world techniques. Woodenboat USA is invested in the type of construction that recalls generations of boat making. Over thirty years in business, our commitment has always been and will continue to be, to excellence, to tradition and to creating products that you can enjoy both for their performance and incredible beauty.

    Inspired by history, the names of our watercraft are derived from the northern waterways where natives and settlers have used them for centuries. Merging centuries-old customs with improvements in technology, we bring you boats that excel in every category.

    Beginning with pliable, high quality Canadian cedar and hardwood, our craftsmen hand join each individual strip. Hundreds of hours go into the construction of our boats, as perfection is the only option. Once built, the piece is encapsulated in fiberglass epoxy resin adding an extra layer of durability and strength. At last, the water craft is ready for its nautical debut.


    List the details of your shipping policy.

    What are your canoes and kayaks made of?

    Our canoes and kayaks are made of the highest quality western red cedar and some hardwoods. The larger boats are made of western red cedar, pine, and hardwoods such as oak, mahogany, teak, and some locally available woods. Our wooden watercraft are then coated both inside and out in an incredibly durable American made fiberglass and epoxy resin.

    You mentioned that you use fiberglass in your boats, so what is the difference between your boats and fiberglass boats?

    We only use 1 or 2 clear thin layers of fiberglass coating on top of the wood for reinforcement and added integrity. You never see any fiberglass, only beautiful, hand-joined cedar and hardwoods.

    What is a typical cedar strip canoe or kayak weight?

    A 15’ kayak weighs approximately 45lbs, making it very easy for one person to carry. A 16’ canoe weighs about 48lbs.

    What type of boats do you build?

    Our wooden strip canoes and kayaks are hugely popular for touring and recreational purposes. We also build wooden dinghies, wooden sail boats, classic wooden runabouts, and speedboats. Additionally, we can custom-build any design with which you supply us.

    Guidelines for use


    With a little bit of care and maintenance, your beautiful canoe can last for generations. While our products are certainly durable and solid, they still require the right type of care and handling to ensure that they perform optimally.

    • It is recommended that you rinse your canoe off with fresh clean water after every use.
    • Upon returning from the trip, allow your canoe to air-dry in the shade.


    Besides taking care of your canoe, storage also plays an essential role in maintaining your canoe’s appearance and beauty.

    • Always store your wooden canoe in shade.
    • Turn it upside down on the support thereby keeping it off the ground.
    • Hanging your boat from the rafters in your garage or shop would be ideal storage.


    Minor scratches can be repaired by marine spar vanish or some brand of automobile wax. Smooth the damaged area with sand paper, wipe clean, then apply marine spar vanish.


    Wooden Boat USA strongly recommends that a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) is worn whenever paddling.
