All the glueing up is done.  

 Trying to figure out the final shape had me looking at picture after picture of different oars.  With a basic idea of what I wanted I started drawing in lines for dimensioning and then planning down to those lines.
Keeping the oars right next to each other helped me make sure
that I shaped them the same.

the basic shape.

planning the blades flat.

Square looms help to offset the weight of the blade.

Looks like a big wooden screwdriver.

Keeping the handles thin for an easy grip.

Just a bit of tapering of the shaft, then on to thinning down the blades.
