We continue building a bushcraft viking house in the forest using hand tools only. Part 4 focuses on using the axe, auger and draw knife to build a viking bench, saw horse and spit for the stone clay fire pit ready to roast meat over the fire. Now that the cedar log foundations are in place, and the timber frame has been built, we are able to focus on making viking furniture such as the saw horse and bench using traditional woodworking techniques and hand tools. We use a draw knife to take off the bark of the cedar logs to help preserve them and prevent bugs and water from rotting the logs. I use an auger to drill holes for the legs of the saw horse. We then use a sledge hammer to drive in the legs. Using an axe and some wood wedges we also split a cedar log to make a bench for inside the viking house. We cook up food over the fire, this time southern fried chicken in the cast iron dutch oven over the viking long pit. In Part 5 we focus on finishing the wood frame roof of the Viking House. We build the rafters, and build some pirlins too. As well as begin collecting the cedar bark ready for the cedar shingle roof.

The morning after my last outing went bad I sat down to talk through what happened and where I feel things went wrong, I recorded this BEFORE I uploaded the actual video so could get my thoughts out before I had read any comments or feedback from the video itself. this was not scripted, I just wanted to chat things through to help myself understand how things had gone so badly.
I went out for a camp in awful weather conditions without thinking things through properly and got myself in trouble, I had the early signs of Hypothermia which led to me making bad choices and having some accidents, this night could have been a lot worse but fortunately I decided to call it a day before things could get any worse. I decided to upload this video in an effort to be honest and show how quickly things can go bad in the cold weather. Packing up and going home is always an option.
We continue to build a bushcraft viking house in the woods with hand tools. Part 3 focuses on building a viking long pit, or stone fire pit, for the inside of the viking house. We dig the foundations of the pit using a shovel and our hands. We dig through the soil layer and then dig down to the clay layer. We store the clay for later use. We then head into the forest to find some large stones to line the fire pit. We used the clay to help set the stones in place and we do more pointing on the stone slabs around the edge of the pit. The viking house build is coming along nicely. It now has a foundation of cedar logs, secured together using log cabin notches or saddle notches. We have a timber frame built using wood dowels to hold it in place. We burnt the ends of the frame to prevent the rot from the ground. We stop for lunch and Dustin cooks fresh caught squid in egg and bread crumbs over a bed of fresh salad with sweet chilli sauce dip. We also grill whole fish over the fire viking style. Next we will focuses on building more viking beds in the camp. Thanks for watching and subscribe so you don't miss the next episode!
