There are those who say they want to get back to building by hand and those who really do it!
Unfortunately, even if you enjoy DIY projects, there may be the occasional time when people may not understand the true nature of survival, prepping, bushcraft, homesteading and doing it themselves.
In fact, some people may already want it done (for them) already and may have chastised you for creating handmade items that can much easier be bought in a local sporting goods stores.

As survivors of a SHTF situation, we may not be able to go to the local Home Depot© or Charlie’s Rifle Shack to pick up our hardware and weapons. In the far future, when our tools begin to breakdown, we really may need the know how to build everything on our own!
After the break, check out Part 3 of a marvelous set of videos where a righteous gent is making his own portable sawmill. It really is quite incredible!
