Hello again. 

The guys on my hand tools evening classes make a lot of shavings from their hand planes. These shavings go into a bag and every now and then, fill a bag and need to go. So I looked into trying these out a few years ago, where I wrapped the shavings, very tightly into a sheet of newspaper. It worked pretty well. 

They worked out pretty good.

Using old spoiled newspaper and carefully wrapping the thin slithers of wood is one way of safely burning the waste shavings.  From there I wanted to reuse the inner cardboard tube from toilet paper. Used as a mould to make Firestarters, they're great way to start the fire off.

There will be a follow up video showing how I burn them and how good they are.
