What we'll do
We will make a Light Duty Bucksaw, a saw that can be made from materials available at your camp and a few lightweight parts you can carry in your backpack. We will use coppiced hazel, paracord, a couple of nuts and bolts and a Bowsaw Blade. You will be shown how to make the Bucksaw using a range of some traditional and modern tools in order to be able to compare different approaches. If you have equipment you would like to use please do bring it along. Once you have constructed your Bucksaw you will have the opportunity to use it to process dry material for fire wood. Please note there is a small additional fee of £4 payable on the day to cover the cost of materials.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.
