Video: Ray Mears’ Buchcraft

Watch survival expert Ray Mears construct a birch bark canoe with Algonquin canoe maker Pinock Smith, one of the few people left who know how to craft them using traditional methods. As far as Mears is concerned, the birch bark canoe is the best vessel man has ever created.

This is episode one in the second season of Ray Mears’ Bushcraft TV show.


Don’t miss the feature story on Ray Mears on a canoeing adventure in the wilds of northern Ontario in the Spring 2014 issue of Canoeroots, hitting newsstands in February.
