Outdoor people don't make their own gear to save money. The fly fisherman who ties his own flies or makes her own rods will readily admit, if they are honest, that they have more money tied up in inventory and tools than they would ever have spent on store-bought flies or fly rods. Economy isn't the objective; it is the satisfaction of making something and then seeing it do what it was designed to do. And, they will argue, what they make is better than what they can buy. They are right! In this book, you'll find a variety of fun and functional projects for the outdoor enthusiast. From a canoe paddle to a pack frame to a reflector oven—you'll find the instruction you need to for items to keep you safe and comfortable on your adventures. Besides the great outdoor equipment you can build from this book, there is detailed information on the use of epoxy technology—the greatest boon to the outdoorsman since the birch bark canoe. And a generous collection of hints, tips, ideas, and recipes will make your days outdoors more enjoyable and productive.
