    I made my first knife from a railroad spike.
    You'll have trouble finding one of those out in the wilds today.

    Going completely over your head mole. The idea is to build a Bushcraft camp, but with a twist. I am not going for the build it from what you find in the woods, but build it from what you can scrounge. Hence Hobo Camp rather than Bushcraft camp.

    I could hook up the generator and pull it down to the sight, bring the skillmsaw and the electric nailer. Sure, I would of been done the same day. But what’s the fun in that?

    A little cheating here:

    A 36" table and four stools from a single sheet of 5/8" or 3/4" thick plywood.

    Skillsaw or jigsaw
    Chisel
    Hammer
