Woodlore Aspirant Instructor and Quartermaster David Southey recently enjoyed some well-earned downtime following his trip to Finland, assisting Ray on the Woodlore Winter Bushcraft in the Northen Forest Expedition and before the busy course season gets underway in April.
As an outdoors person David naturally enjoys spending his spare time outdoors and his recent time-off was no exception, taking a walk in his local woodland looking for the signs of spring. During his walk, David spotted a Badger latrine, he had a brew fire and then set about making some coat hooks for his home.
David sourced some Hornbeam from his local coppice to start his simple project. He stripped off the bark and shaped to allow a single screw to secure his new hooks to the wall.
A simple project which brings the outside inside.
