Collector Car, Motorcycle and Boat Show
Kevin Fitzke, Founder and design/builder of Fitzke Wood Paddle Boards will be opening up his new shop space in Minneapolis to showcase the build process of his prohibition-era inspired mahogany wood paddle boards. Kevin grew up in his Dad’s woodworking shop and has had an obsession with wood boats since he could walk. Kevin has built a career out of design and good old elbow grease but most importantly is trying to inspire the passion for others by the design and building of wood paddle boards. His designs are inspired by the Golden Era of wooden boats and racing airplanes but uses the latest technologies in materials and building techniques. As a bonus for the workshop, you will be able to see first hand the build process of Kevin’s replica 1935 Ventnor single step hydroplane that he has been building for almost two years now. This boat will be completed by summer 2019.
