The chimney hole is from rot/disease/etc. I wonder if this is as easy as cutting a slot to meet the bottom of the naturally-occurring hole?
or a few plunge cuts with a chainsaw?
I’m going to have to try this with 4 small logs and some baling wire…
One name for them in Finland is JÃ¤tkÃ¤nkynttilÃ¤, 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.
Brilliant. I hope to give this a try the next time I go camping.
