Bushcraft Camp Furniture & The Tools Needed

3 simple tools can create magnificent creations in a woodland setting, make camp life more enjoyable and learn your craft.

Camp life at the Appalachian Bushman School is about comfort. Throughout our Bushcaft classes we teach individuals to live in harmony with nature. Not only to use the tool they choose to carry with them, but to use what nature provides around them. 

What are the 3 tools needed for bushcraft furniture?

Carrying three tools can make camp that much more pleasurable. Those tools are, a saw, auger bit and axe. 

With these tools there is not much a woodsman cannot do.

  • Saw: cutting larger lumber to size, cutting saplings down, and squaring wood
  • Auger bit: bore holes into wood
  • Axe: felling trees, splitting wood, and carving wood to shape

Some of my tools:
