  • Fire by Cans, Part II
    Further explorations of "Fire from a Can of Coke and a Chocolate Bar"

  • Fire From Ice!
    Yes, it is possible! See it here!
  • Fire from Water!Yup, no kidding! Thanks to Rob Bicevskis for this!
  • Materials
    Information about what meterials to use to make fire-making equipment
  • Bow DrillThe old standby. Uses a bow to spin a drill on a second piece of wood, creating friction and heat.
  • Hand DrillThe same principle as a bow drill, but with the hands spinning the drill.
  • Pump DrillHarder to construct than a bowdrill, but a lot less work to use.
  • Fire Boards
    These are what seats the drill at the bottom in the "drill-type" fire making methods.
  • Fire Piston
    A  rather unique method of making fire that relies on air heating up under compression..

    Not just a tropical alternative! See pictures and a movie of this using native materials in Ontario. Also one from Arizona.

    Magnifying lenses, including fire from a light bulb!
  • Two Stones
    Starting fire using just two stones
  • Spontaneous Combustion
    Oil-soaked rags and the like
  • Lava
    The easiest one of all, if you happen to be near a liquid lava flow!
  • Carbide
    Not really a primitive method, but here it is
  • Magnesium & Ferrocerium
    An easy but non-primitive fire starter you can buy in any outdoor store
