Fat Wood help
« on: July 23, 2020, 03:33:28 PM »
So I played around with fatwood for the first time recently and didn't get it to light as I expected it to. I feathered it out towards the tip (it's a fairly small piece I split off) and it lite fairly well with a match, but once the feathered wood burned off the piece just went out. I could see resin bubbling away at the top of the piece so I assume there is actually a significant amount of it in there, thoughts?  :think:

Try to scrape of some material first, then shavings and lastly some thin sticks :tu:
Your piece might be to thick to be heated enough to burn.

I love fat wood.  In my usage I  like to make sure to scrape, feather, or otherwise to get as fine of material so that it can have a chance to catch fire.  This is key especially when using a ferro rod.  When fat wood is really resinous it'll light easily but processing the initial material fine is still key IMO.  Scraping is works like a charm.  Have fun.
