Build a flagpole, table or chair for your camp

SAFETY FIRST: Ask an adult to help with tools you haven't used before.

Give your average camper a set of spars and a coil of rope, and in return you’ll most likely get only a puzzled look.

But present those same materials to a pioneering expert and you’ll get chairs, tables, bridges and all kinds of equipment that’s useful in the outdoors.

Here’s how to build three items — a chair, a flagpole and a table — that could be useful around camp. Click on the pictures for detailed instructions and how-to videos.
