Many people have made DIY handwash stations. This is my version. Cost less than $10 but I had the copper parts in my "I-live-too-damn-far-from-a-hardware-store" stash. I used a cheap fuel pump to move the water. I have access to an aluminum fab shop so I made a bracket for the pump and a clip for the soap. The clip keeps the soap out of the dirt. I put a joint in the upright to make it taller so that I didn't need to bend over as much. Don't go too tall or the cheap pump won't be able to effectively lift much water against gravity. The copper upright is held on the bucket with a clamp. Everything fits in the bucket and is secured with a lid. Tip: Warm water in the bucket on a cold morning is really nice.

I sew tons of boating gear. All our straps, drop bags, gear covers, misc bags. If you can make it from webbing, cordura, and mesh, I can make it. Here is my latest project- the world's most over-engineered everything bag.

I got some mesh from Jan at Stitches and stuff.

Holy mackerel, you run all of that through a home machine. You must have a pile of broken needles. WOW! Nice work. I just finished a "King Sling" gear cover with more Ds(rings) on it than my high school report cards.

Small one gallon hand wash station. I do a lot of 1-2 or 3 man trips so I made this one for those trips. It is 6"x 6" x 13" packed size. I have a large 4 gallon also but takes too much space for some trips. Containers are Lock n Lock brand.

Great thread! I’m still interested in building my own oars. Have good, straight, clear Douglas Fir that I can use for the endeavor. What I’m not clear on is how to round out the shafts and particularly how to articulate the grips. Other suggestions I could use are how to treat/protect the blades (epoxy, fiberglass, plastidip, heat shrink, etc. I’m thinking pins and clips would be more straight forward than sleeves. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hahaha, swing on through Bozeman and I'll see what I can stitch up!

If you wanna send me a patch of your choice I will seriously try and make one up. They are a little bit dependent on your preferred beverage vessel, that one in particular is made for a 20oz Hydroflask tumbler. It also fits a nalgene AND a 32oz hydroflask bottle as well.

I leave for a Grand Trip in a week so I probably won't be able to crank one out before then but perhaps when I get back before Lochsa season really kicks off!
