Making a saw horse

Yesterday saw me in the woods making a saw horse.  Whilst not a particularly portable piece of equipment, in a semi-permanent or permanent camp setting they’re really useful for processing fire wood and provide a degree of safety by reducing the risk of cuts to the supporting hand.

In this video I show you how to make a saw horse using 5 x 2.4 meter lenghts of 75mm x 50mm pre-treated spruce, 3 x 8mm coach bolts and some screws.

Whilst we don’t actually teach making a saw horse, we put them to good use on many of our courses, including our 2 Day Bushcraft Course5 Day Bushcraft Course and IOL Bushcraft Competency course.

You can see plenty of photos from these courses, as well as all of our others, on our Facebook page.
