Default prop sections?

Hello.
I am new in this forum. Recently I became interested in the making of wooden props.

My ever burning question is: what kind of blade sections are recommended, and where does one find them. I am interested in wooden 12x4 inch props.
Up till now I have not been able to find tables of proper blade sections
I am willing to start fresh, by plotting the sections at the various stations of the blades.

In the design section I found a blueprint and scaled it to 6.5'. Build it out of 1/2" baltic birch. Photos under one of my posts.
