Creating a natural heat source using “Noodling”.
Winter and early Spring can bring many cold days to the Handcrafted Log and Timber Home’s Log Yard. So how do the guys keep warm? They make themselves a fire log by plunging into the log against the grain that creates log stringy strips of wood that make excellent kindling or fire starter.
This is also known as “noodling” (click on the link to learn more) because of the stringy dry paper created by the angle of the cut. In these videos, Markus is showing us the natural paper that is created and also his version of the “Swedish Fire Log” or “Canadian Candle”.
