Playing to sugru's strengths, and taking the "hack" bit to heart, I decided to use mine to help make a poker for my wood-burning stove. A poker is a type of fire iron, and to make things easy, I made mine from an old tire iron. I just had to change one letter.
Why? I've never owned a poker, having always just used a stick of green wood instead. However, they periodically need replacing or get burned accidentally, so a real poker would be a fine thing. I like burning stuff, so idle fire optimization is an activity I frequently indulge in.

Step 2: What Is Sugru, Anyway?
Step 3: Prepare Iron Rod
Step 4: Add Heat-resistant Handle
Step 5: Use
Note: thanks to Instructables for sending me the key ingredient - sugru is fun to use and the finish on the handle turned out way better than I was expecting.
