So what supplies do you need to build a wooden paddle board? In a nut shell, you will need to create an internal frame. This is made of lightweight wood. This skeleton of a frame can be made using either our paddle board plans or by purchasing one of our paddle board kits seen here. Once the frame is made you'll use your favorite woods to cover the outer skeleton to create the outer skin.
