The Swedish Candle – a movable campfire

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here is how to make a Swedish Candle from a couple of pine logs, a hatchet and a hammer. This one burned for over an hour and a half – it also boiled the kettle! The SW is perfect if you need to make a fire on wet or snow covered ground, it can  be moved when lit and you can cook on it from the moment its lit.

Its also ideal for the garden because it doesnt require a firepit and it wont burn a hole in the lawn. Alternatively, if your planning an outing to the lake shore or beach you can take one of these in the boot of the car and have your fire lit within minutes!

There are a number of variations and we’ll be looking at these in upcoming posts.
