This is a fairly simple project requiring only a few supplies and anyone can do it. This fire starter is waterproof snow proof and a it can light wet tender and small pieces of wood. It is also lightweight and fairly compact.

Step 1:

List of supplies 1 container of used candle wax 1 partial piece of an egg carton the paper kind and 1 double boiler

<p>Fill cups with mixture of dryer lint and paper from cross cut paper shredder. Uses less wax and burns longer.</p>
I have used those and dryer lint the pine gets hot and the dryer lint burns longer. I will be making some combining both materials and post the results here in the comments
<p>The combo mentioned above works very very well</p>
I wonder if soaking something like pieces of pine tinder in the wax would expedite the process
