Man Shows Off Craft Skills With Nifty Raft Shelter

Plenty of survival movies include protagonists building rafts. But the latest vid from Bushcraft Solo Skills shows how it’s really done.

There’s something enchanting about this DIY video where a survivalist builds a floating shelter in the middle of the jungle.

After gathering bamboo from the forest around him, this crafty outdoorsman builds a raft with a tiny cabin on top — all from scratch.

You won’t find any dialogue or explanations here. Just the sounds of the forest and a man working alone. When he eats his campfire dinner at night from his finished bushcraft raft — that’s when you’ll feel the pull to join him.

Runtime: 40 minutes
