Interlocking supports on a debris shelter

I try to avoid using cordage when constructing a debris shelter due to the value of that cordage.  A few simple design/construction principles can completely remove the need to use cordage.

In this short video I demonstrate using a couple of ‘Y’ shaped sticks and how to interlock them to  provide structural integrity.

We spend time looking at interlocking supports on a debris shelter on our 2 Day Bushcraft Course5 Day Bushcraft Course, as well as the IOL Bushcraft Competency Certificate course.

You can see photos from all these, and all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
