Wax and Sawdust Firestarter

George Vondriska teaches you a cool way to get your winter fires going! George fills empty cardboard egg cartons with wood shavings (he recommends soft woods like pine or cedar), then pours a layer of melted wax over each shell, making sure to get all of the wood wet. When the wax solidifies, you can use your woodworking band saw to cut the shells apart. VoilĂ , you've just found an easy way to start a fire!

Outdoor expert Dick Turpin shows how to make a long burning campfire starter with egg carton reservoirs, sawdust and wax.

Now we can get rid of all those old used candles that we have been saving all those years... :-)
