    Please, enable playback on other websites, otherwise It defeats the purpose to embedded video here. Tick the "embed" option available in advanced settings. Or just put the link if the purpose is to be viewed in youtube.

    Great video. Never thought about tear up apart tree bark in order to reduce it to kindling strings. That pile of rocks was a nicely set barrier and the twigs structure is fairly simple to replicate. It was charcoal you have used to light up the kindling ?

    It's definitely beneficial to have stones and rocks as a barrier against the wind, but it's great to ensure that there are still holes where the wind can get through to provide a great oxygen flow to the flame. I have a fire pit in my back yard that I often practice creating my own fire and using different materials that I find. I have recently stripped a palm frond and turned the leaves into strings that I braided to create a rope. I coiled the rope up around a small pile of dried brush and used my stones to spark the end of the braid. It doesn't really matter how long the braid is or which end you light, as it will create a ring around the dried brush to give you an even burn. Worked out better than I planned. I'll try to remember to make a video next time. :)

    Sorry about the EMBED setting, I had not realised it was not turned on. Some companies use my videos to attract customers to their advertising without my permission, & if they refuse to take the video down, I have to turn the embed setting off. It is back on now, & thanks for the heads up Endure, appreciated.

    The tinder material in my tinderbox is charred plant tinders. There are other videos of mine on this "FIRE" forum that will explain about plant tinders, but if you have any questions, just ask.

    Your fire lighting method sounds very interesting, I would love to see a video of this.
