How To Make Char Cloth and Charcoal

Char Cloth

Today I will show you how to make char cloth and charcoal.
Some cotton cloth. Some pieces of wood. A small metal tin with one small hole punched in it. Add some fire and you can make char cloth to start a campfire and charcoal for writing on hard surfaces when you need, but don't have a pencil.
I remember as a small boy, making charcoal to use as an art instrument for drawing charcoal pictures.
The charcoal you make can be used for art, as an emergency pencil, or as fire tender.

Char cloth is useful for lighting the tinder when making a campfire or otherwise traveling through the woods and need a fire to warm up or to cook dinner.

In the following You Tube video, I show you how to make your own char cloth and charcoal.
