I know we've got a bunch of threads on here that could be included in this but, since I'm expecting to be cooped up for a couple of months, I've started collected ideas for bushcraft projects I can work on indoors at home. If you've got any, please add them to the list!

There are all kinds of paracord "crafts" that can be made.

How about trying to perform common camp tasks with one hand? You do not want to find out the hard way.

Be there, done it. (Broke my right shoulder three summers ago and my arm was immobilized for three months.) It's a great skill to practice. You'd be amazed at much you depend on the second hand and arm, especially if they are your dominant side.

Indoor and bushcraft are two words that hardly go together.

Use a bow drill to light your fireplace maybe? or just go outside in your yard and do something.

After looking at quivers on Amazon last night we just got a cheapy. Mrs says she will just watch for materials at the thrift store and make her own.

Im sure she make make what costs a hundred bucks for a couple dollars of leather scraps or what have you.

A little OT,but if you are new to archery,Excaliber recurve crossbows in our case,drop me a line,I will let you know what you need to get to get set up,some things are must haves and they dont make it clear you cant get going without them,and Im just a newbie learning the hard way.Good info on setting up is just not readily avialable. IE,you buy the scope and scope rings,nobody mentions you have to buy a ramp to mount those to.

Mostly true, but there's a lot of bushcraft prep we can do indoors.

Like... making waxed cotton balls, waxed jute, candle making....

Or.... making a leather pucker pouch to carry bannock mix...

Or... making a poncho out of a wool blanket...

Or... learning to sharpen knives...
