  • Mini Project #11: DIY Fatwood Pencil

    How much of the wax actually gets adsorbed by the wood? Does it make a big difference verses a regular pencil (extend burn time/temp)?On a related note, if you have a battery you can use the pencil as is to start a fire. Expose the lead on each end and run a current across it (i.e. jumper cables and a car battery). The lead will get hot and start the wood on fire.
