How to build a no-frills protected bed in the wild, from top to bottom

The popular Primitive Technology blog features an unnamed man in Far North Queensland in Australia building tools and structures using only raw, found materials. This instalment finds the man constructing a rain-proof shelter, with room for a fire pit, out of wood, vines, palm and grass. The resulting video makes for a small-scale masterclass in DIY wilderness survival. To learn more about the step-by-step process while watching, turn on closed captions in the YouTube video player.
