Kinda cool. I think I would like to try this.

Looks like Elm to me. Anyone know for sure, or have a good guess?

Thanks for the link but it doesn’t really apply to this thread.

That’s pretty cool. That would be great at campouts.

Some Elms smell like pee when you burn them so I would test burn a piece first if you make your own.

Looks more like some big pine to me. Note the large wormy areas on the outer sapwood…see a lot more of this on pines than on elms. Interesting little device – wonder how much they cost.

The more I look at it, the more I wonder if it is cedar.
