Outdoorsman Series

The Outdoorsman is our toughest and most flexible camp kitchen. It is available in both Baltic birch and marine-grade Okoume plywood. All design features of the cabinet are identical, the only difference being the species of wood. The Outdoorsman Baltic Birch sports a new countertop extender design that enables the extenders to be conveniently attached to the outside of the counter for easy transport and storage. The Okoume still has the original extender design, which has to be stowed separately. We provide a carrying bag. The differences between the woods are explained following the basic Outdoorsman description.

Outdoorsman Baltic Birch & Outdoorsman Okoume

Key features

  • Made in Colorado, USA.
  • Three storage compartments with a removable divider for flexibility.
  • Slide-out shelf with magnetic knife rack.
  • Two drawers for spices, utensils, and silverware.
  • Stainless steel hinge to support the counter.

Materials

Outdoorsman Baltic Birch

My Camp Kitchen Outdoorsman Tailgating

3/8″ and 1/4″ Baltic birch solid-core, CARB-certified plywood

The My Camp Kitchen Outdoorsman Baltic Birch is produced from birch trees in the Baltic region of Europe, primarily Russia and Finland. We chose Baltic birch for our products because of its strength and solid core, which enables dado, rabbet, box, and dovetail joinery.

We use Grade BB, which is generally light and even in color. Occasional small, tight knots are permitted. Open knots and defects are cut out and replaced with small veneer patches before gluing. Grade BB permits up to six small patches per sheet. The veneer selected for the patches is of the same general color as the basic face veneer. When possible, we cut the wood so we can position the patches on the inside.

Although the thickness is commonly expressed in Imperial (English) units, Baltic birch is manufactured to metric dimensions: 1/4″ is actually 6mm and has five plies; 3/8″ is 9mm and has seven plies; and 1/2″ is 12mm and has nine plies.

For the Outdoorsman Baltic Birch, we use a UV-cured epoxy acrylate finish on the flat surface. This is an extremely tough and scratch-resistant finish. To bring out the attractive contrast of the plies, we use an oil finish for the edges.

For our Outdoorsman Kit (see below), we use unfinished Baltic birch.

Outdoorsman Okoume

My Camp Kitchen Outdoorsman Okoume

1/2″ and 1/4″ Okoume marine-grade plywood

We chose Okoume not because it is marine-grade but because of its light weight. Okoume is 30-percent lighter than Baltic birch. Another advantage is its beauty. When finished with a clear varnish, Okoume has a light mahogany appearance.

Also known as gaboon or combogala, Okoume (aucoumea klaineana) is a tree species. It is only found in Gabon, the Congo, and Equatorial Guinea in Africa. Okoume has an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio, making it the plywood of choice for racing boats and applications where weight matters. Because it grows rapidly and regenerates well in clearings, Okoume is a highly renewable resource. The logs are shipped from Africa to France and converted into a marine-grade plywood by Joubert Plywood Group, which ships products for sale in the US. It is significantly more expensive than Baltic birch but worth the added cost.

The finish on the Outdoorsman Okoume is a two-component exterior-grade conversion varnish.
