PREPING: Oldy but goody

Here is a book that comes in handy for all of us who prep. It is titled WOODCRAFT, by Bernard S. Mason.

It covers just about all you would need to know on how to do things, like make a brush den, making tree bark containers, cordage, cups, plates, bowls, and eating utensils, tanning hides, and handmade goggles so you don't go snow blind.

It covers log cabins, furniture, homemade knives -- even totem poles and moccasins. It's kind of a one stop, do all book. Over 500 pages. It's old school. Copyright 1939.

My Dad and I, when I was a little fart, put some of the things in this book to use. I even whittled a spoon years ago that I used for years, until a magpie swooped into my camp and carried it off to who knows where!

So, if you can find a copy, I don't think you will be disappointed. I'm going to get re-acquainted with my copy and maybe do a project or two from it this winter. So, see if you can find a copy and let me know what you think.
