Step 1: Gather These Tools and Materials
Drill, drill bits, thick cotton string, lighter or matches, torch fuel, glass coke bottle with screw on lid
Step 2: Plait the Wick
Plait the string so it is about 1.5foot long. Tie off the end.
Step 3: Tie a Whopping Great Knot in One End Pf the Plait
Tie a heaving line in one end of the plait. This will be the lighted end of the wick.
Step 4: There's a Hole in My Coke Lid...
Select a drill bit slightly smaller than your plait and use it to drill a hole on the coke lid.
Step 5: Feeding Time
Feed the non-lighting end of the wick through the hole. You may have to cut off the knot to do so. If so, retie it when the wick is fully through.
Step 6: Fill and Wait
Fill the bottle half full with torch fuel, insert the wick and wait for the fuel to soak up the wick.
Step 7: Light Her Up!
Light it and have fun.
