Instructables
I thought it would be a good idea to make an ible on this, so here it is.  I was about to start the stove this morning, when I got the idea to make an instructable on it.  This instructable will show you how to build and light a fire in your stove.  Happy firelighting!

Step 2: Step two: Set up the wood

This step is important to get right, so get it right!  This is where you set up the wood to get the fire started.  First, you need wood, so I went outside and got some.  Then you have to get kindling, which is just thinly split fuelwood (the big logs) or old split lumber, which I am using.

At this step, let me make a big recemendation to you:  Oak is one of the best firewoods you can use.  It burns long, hot and clean(not much smoke).  We have a lot of oak trees in our yard, too many, in fact, so my dad is always cutting down oaks, and 2-5 trees can last a whole winter.  Do not use pine unless you have to, as it is just about the opposite of everything I just said about oak.

I will give you instructions throught image notes, as those are much easier to follow.

You know what?  Thats not funny.  This is a real tutorial, not a joke.  I am going to be posting other stuff, besides knex, and this is one thing.  You can go post you own ible on how to be stupid with fire, this is serious.  So go and delete that comment now, because it is worthless.  I mean it.  Go and delete that comment.
I thought it was funny.
TheChemiker (author)  ~Aeronous~4 years ago
sorta, but it was more mocking the ible than funny.
he was just messing around, he does that all the time. he didnt mean to offend you or your instructable.
 jeezus.... i was kidding around.. Calm down.
TheChemiker (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
Im sorry, its just that i was in a bad mood that day.
TheChemiker (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
It was also mocking my instructable.
TheChemiker (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
Thank you for deleting it.  I just don't want stupid comments on this instructable.

you don't need 'firestart' to light a fire.
there is another  'green' way,
get the old newspaper, and roll it into balls, of one sheet, and repeat until the whole ground of the double burning stove (whatever its called)
then go and get some kindling, or small sticks from your backyard, and cross them around to make a nest, then put the big log ontop of it.
go get a match, light it, and then chuck it at the back. DONE.

I know, I mentioned newspaper, its just that those work better.  And anyway, you don't cover the whole bottom, you would just do what i showed, except for make the kindling smaller.  We didn't buy board just for kindling, we were remodeling, and that was some of the wood we took out, and it fit the bill perfectly.  Also, lighting a fire to heat our house is much cheaper and "greener" than buying electricity.
well yeah, maybe if you put this instructable into one step, then in the next step do a different way to light a fire.
