Campaign Field Bar

From: R13,100.00

The African Touch Campaign Field Bar is an ideal size for international shipping, and courier delivery is available to most world-wide destinations.

Beautifully handcrafted from fine African hardwood using the best traditional joinery practice. The front panel folds into a mixing tray firmly held by friction stays.

Canvas carry bags with double padded canvas and quality zips are available on request, as is the option of a tray table for the Field Bar to sit on. Please note the canvas covers do not fit tightly on the timber box by design, so handle apertures and zip lines may not line up exactly.

The Campaign field Bar has 18 compartments for bottles and glasses.

The Design

The Campaign Field Bar is designed in the tradition of Campaign Furniture of the 18th and 19th century. At that time Safaris were becoming popular in Africa and the knock-down, portable nature of Campaign furniture made it ideal for Safaris. It is based on the larger Hemingway Field bar but does not come standard with the folding legs. It has an internal construction of 6 x 3 compartments for bottles and glasses. The front door folds conveniently to form a mixing table.

We offer an optional extra version of our Tray Table as a stand for the Campaign Field Bar. This has the advantage of doubling up as very useful drinks tray!


Each Field Bar is built over a week by one of our master artisans. Select timber is carefully planed and matched before being laminated into boards. The dovetail joints of the main box sides are then carefully cut together with a groove to hold the base in place. Once the box is assembled, the internal divisions are carefully fitted using half lap joints. The next process is to build the top and front door using panel in frame construction.

Next comes the fitting of solid brass snap hinges and corner blocks, requiring great skill. The position on the cabinet is marked in pencil. The artisan then uses a very sharp chisel to exactly remove timber to the shape of the fitting. It’s then off to the finishing section for sanding with ever finer sandpaper to give the perfect finish. Finally the finishing coats can be applied.


The traditional material used for Campaign Furniture is mahogany, and we have African Mahogany available together with the very hard and attractive Zambezi Teak.


The Campaign Field Bar makes a delightful Whisky Cabinet to keep your favourite scotch malt whisky with fine Bohemian crystal glasses. Ideal for your office entertainment, home or in a safari lodge or Scottish Game lodge.

Lacquer finish:

To protect your lacquered finish please place your field bar away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month. Apply sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.

    Dear African Touch team,
    I write to let you know that my Field Bar arrived, and it is simply beautiful. Many thanks for all your assistance. It is a piece I look forward to treasuring for many years to come. I look forward to one day visiting you all in person. Until then, I will think of that day each time I use the bar.
    Best regards,
    Dan Mulford

Please note that the timber used to hand make an African Touch Field Bar is a natural hardwood that varied in colour and grain, so no two parts of a field bar will look the same nor will two field bars. Natural knots and growth cracks may be present, but these will not affect the integrity of the piece, but rather add to its charm and appearance.

The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
