      Pete,

      Jim Michalak has a cesries of articles on his site about rowing, and one of
      them has a diagram of a good oar. You are correct that the loom is smallest
      right before the beginning (proximal end) of the blade.

      Go to the alpha listing and look for "oars" or "rowing". I've made a pair of
      these and they are very easy. You must have clamps, a plane, a drawknife, and
      either a scrub plane or a large radius gouge. You can do it without the
      clamps using HH Payson's technique, but you still require the other tools:
