    One name for them in Finland is Jätkänkynttilä, which roughly translates as lumberjacks candle..

    Block of wood, slits using chainsaw, rag dipped in gasoline and a match. Fun for the whole family :)

    This is awesome. I love the simplicity. I was thinking the same thing about it being a couple of plunge cuts and a cut on the side. I may be able to work outside this next winter.

  4. Brilliant. I hope to give this a try the next time I go camping.
