Photo Gallery Having experienced the exhilaration of being propelled by pushing air, the Sensenichs sought another course. By that winter they had transplanted their engine and propeller to an ice sled, which they tethered by a hundred-foot hawser to a stout stake set in the frozen Susquehanna River. Their newly purchased propeller was splintered into kindling. Seventy-five years later the company that bears their name has produced more than , wooden propellers—as well as thousands of metal props. The Sensenich Brothers Propeller Company meets almost the entire demand for Federal Aviation Administration-certified fixed-pitch wooden propellers in the United States. Rowell has performed every job in the prop-making process. He spent 10 years hand-carving more than 10, rough-cut hardwood blanks into perfectly balanced, laminated-wood props.
