Building Outdoor Gear

Building Outdoor Gear: Build Safe, Comfortable Gear for Your Outdoor Adventures by Gil Gilpatrick

Building Outdoor Gear is the result of decades of building and trail testing outdoor gear. From canoe paddle and pack frame to reflector oven and trip box, you’ll find clear, concise instructions for making the equipment you need for a pleasant adventure, whether you’re camping, fishing, hunting or canoeing. This newly revised second edition of Building Outdoor Gear includes plans and patterns for classic outdoor essentials, along with step-by-step directions featuring color photos. As a hands-on Outdoor Resources instructor, I managed to perfect, field test, and build sporting equipment that meets the demands of the most serious enthusiast. Show your pride on the trail with your own hand-built equipment that really works. This book may be purchased for $19.95 from Amazon or
