Did you know you could burn awesome-smelling incense and be green at the same time? Neither did I until I built the all-natural incense burner. Made from nothing but recycled materials gathered from nature, this rustic burner is both pleasing to the eye, and made from the best stuff nature has to offer. (That and some miscellaneous hardware =P)
This burner is great to have in your own home or to be given as a gift.
Step 1: Gather What Nature Gave You (and Some Other Parts)
In order to build this burner, we'll have to harvest several branches from a tree. Now I imagine all you hippies flipping out right about now about me killing trees for incense, so before you write angry comments, rest assured that the branches I used were from an already felled willow tree that would only be turned to mulch anyway. This is completely 100% recycled wood, I'm pretty sure hippies like that stuff, so hopefully we'll keep them at bay for now.
A large branch - I used a 2 1/2" - 3" around piece of green willow
A smaller branch - About 3/4" is perfect
Dremel (alternatively you could just use big power tools, but where's the fun in that?)
Tiny (3/4" - 1") nails
Sod shovel (flat one)
