Here is a video I put together for an instructables.com contest. The contest topic is survival. I'll be doing more on this subject in the future as well as on making and using basic stone tools. I love the hand drill method. More people are familiar with the bow and drill, but many of us hand drill nuts are not so nuts about the bow drill method. It is way more complicated, way more prone to failure, requires a string and it's a lot of work to use. If you need some serious cardio workout, make a bow and drill fire kit! Not that hand drilling can't be a whole lot of work too, but... I'll eventually have tested hand drill kits for sale here on the website, once I collect some good hearth material.
That's it for now. I'm trying to make a couple more instructables projects for other contests and are ending soon. Gotta go get on that. Wish me luck!
