    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    Very interesting. I wonder if just hammering the cotton roll as the last step would also light it up?

    That is an interesting question. I would think on a rock maybe. @Bishop do you have a hammer?

    I don't think hammering will work because the board is help keep in the heat in

    Wonder if that will work with jute twine instead of a cotton ball. If you make a tinder bundle by teasing out the jute before adding the wood ash or rust. Something to try out...
