Using a hand made bucksaw Bucksaw workshop Making a bucksaw Making a bucksaw

Make a Bucksaw & Canvas Case Workshop

The bucksaw is a collapsible, lightweight wooden frame saw used for sectioning larger timber and light felling – the perfect companion for a good quality axe. It’s clever mortice and tenon construction all held firm by the tensioning cord, comes apart quickly and easily when not in use and fits inside a narrow canvas sleeve so it can be carried in a rucksack for heavy duty camp building and woodland crafts.

This workshop will show you how to plan out and cut the mortice and tenon joints using hand tools and your bucksaws will be made from planed seasoned oak, sealed with Danish oil. The canvas carry case complete with QR buckle and strap can either be hand stitched here in the woods or cut out and tacked for finishing at home on a sewing machine. Blade, wing nuts, strong cord and all tools and equipment are provided.

Hot drinks and snacks are available all day but please bring along your own lunch.
