I've gone ahead and saved my progress so far as Linear gradbackground.ai, found inside the 15_gradients folder. You can see that we've made quite a bit of progress toward our final goal, as represented by this document Final gradient effect.ai. Now, among other difference between the two illustrations are the gradients that I've assigned to the wood portion of the paddle. So we have one gradient assigned to the right hand edge of the handle, another to the left edge of the handle, and a third assigned to the forward edge of the handle, as well as the wood paddle in the background there.

All of these gradients run at exactly the same angle, the angle of the paddle itself. This is something you can do with a Gradient tool, although it's not obvious by any means as you will see, but is a really powerful feature. I'm going to switch back to Linear gradbackground.ai. I've gone ahead and created these gradients in advance and saved them at swatches for you. So here is ...
