Podcast & Video - Jerome Canning makes a sculling oar

The Canadian Museums Association conference has been running this week, and one of the demonstrations was by Jerome Canning, a boatbuilder working with the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador in Winterton.

I spoke with Jerome about the sculling oar he was working on at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland. In the podcast, Jerome describes what a sculling oar is, and how he is making it.

You can listen to a streaming audio version of the interview here:

I have placed a very short video clip on YouTube of Jerome using a spokeshave to thin down the handle of the oar. You can see that video at:
