Wooden Bucksaw Workshop

Mid-week Workshops:

A selection of mid-week workshops are running as part of the 2020 course program focussing on some of the most useful advanced wilderness living, self-reliance and traditional crafts – lighting fire by friction, woodworking and leather working. All the workshops are designed to send you home not just with a new skill but also an extremely useful piece of equipment or kit, handmade entirely by you!   

Places will be limited to five or six depending on the subject, giving these small workshops more exclusivity than many of the busier courses.  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.

They can also be booked as private workshops so if the advertised date doesn’t suit you, get in touch to choose your own. Many other crafts, wilderness living and survival skills can also be covered during a private course.

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 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 (full instructions are provided). Blade, wing nuts, strong cord, carry case materials and all tools and equipment are provided.

Why not make a long weekend of it, camping overnight in the woods and join us on the Carving Spoons & Spatulas workshop on the Saturday and Sunday?

This course has been re-scheduled to run after June 2020. Please email to register your interest and as soon as we have new dates, you’ll be the first to know!
