Wooden Bucksaw Workshop

Wooden Bucksaw 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 one day woodland based workshop will show you how to plan out and cut the mortice and tenon joints using hand tools (useful joinery skills for the future!) and your bucksaws will be made from planed seasoned English 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 (full instructions are provided). Blade, wing nuts, strong cord, carry case materials and all tools and equipment are provided.

All tools, materials and hot drinks are provided however, please bring your own lunch and snacks.  Arrival 9am each morning and we'll finish around 5pm.

This workshop can be booked as a private training day, get in touch to choose your own date.  Many other crafts, wilderness living and survival skills can also be covered during a private course.
