Woodsmaster Vol 15

Sticks, Stoves and Stitches

Join Ron Hood and a couple of his friends in another informative volume of the Woodsmaster Video series. In this video you will learn how to make Buffalo Hide Moccasins close-up from beginning-to-end from Trapping and Hide expert, George Michaud. Learn how to make a pattern from a foot (yours or other), learn the proper stitching techniques so you will not "walk off" the stitching once you begin to wear the mocs. Learn what materials to use and what a "glover's needle" is good for. Learn an improvised thimble and how to prepare the sole for your sandals as well as other intricacies that will help you to make extremely comfortable footwear from thick rawhide. The techniques you learn from George can apply to any leather-working from mocs to anything you want to make with rawhide.

Get your cans ready and in-hand!!! Join "Fire God" Alan Halcon as he teaches you step-by-step how to make the Halcon Mini Alcohol Stove. This stove is made out of 2 aluminum cans and is so small it will fit into your back pocket (not recommended!) It is so effective it will boil water in a flash. It is so easy to make that if you accidentally sit on it (if you put in your back pocket!!) you can make another one in just a few minutes with cans you find on the trail. If you can't make the Halcon stove after watching this video, then you you wouldn't be able to make it if Alan taught you in person. Also Join Alan for his demonstration on how to make a long-lasting coal with the easy-and-fast-to-make Fire Drill. You won't believe how easy it is until you see they way he does it! Of course this video is also filled with so many close-up tips and techniques for each of these skills that we just don't have room to list them here. Join Ron Hood and friends today in this fabulous, skills-based close-up Woodsmaster volume today!

This video is over 1 hr and 20 minutes of detailed instruction!!
