Renewing the oar stock

The oars for our grebes have been looking decidedly shabby, but Endra and Tess have taken this issue in hand.  They are fixing and releathering the old oars and making new ones from the stock of poplar that has been seasoning for the last year.  We weren't sure about the poplar when we slabbed it up, but it looks like it will be more than adequate for the job, and very light into the bargain.  Thanks to Marshall Roberts who provided the trees.
