How To Make a Paracord Firewood Holder

Transporting firewood in a survival situation becomes a chore when you've got a fire that needs to be constantly stoked up.

A good way to maximize the amount of wood you bring back per trip, is by using paracord to create a wood carrier.

You can turn that 6 feet of paracord in your survival bracelet into something that will save you a ton of time when it comes to transporting firewood. Watch Corporals Corner give us a step by step.

First You'll Need Two Sticks

Find two sticks similar to the ones pictures.

The sticks should fit comfortably in your hand like the handle of a hammer.

The first branch should be around 12 inches.

The second one should be 18 to 24 inches.

Get Your Paracord

Now you are going to get about 6 feet of paracord. 

An easy way to measure the cord is by going from your chest to your arm, and then double it.

Singe The Tips

If you can singe the tips of your paracord, you should.

It's not 100% necessary, however, it will make tying your knot easier.

Knot Your Ends and Finish The Layout

Now it's time to tie off both ends. 

Lay your paracord down so you can see the outline of your carrier.

Tie Off The Handle

Both knotted ends can now be tied off to the larger stick.

On the opposite end you will tie a Jam Knot.

When tightening the knot, ensure that the turns form a neat spiral and don't overlap each other.

Now Adjust Your Size

Now the only thing you need to do is adjust the size of your bundle carrier. 

As you can see, 6 feet of paracord can create quite a bit of firewood.
