    It reminds me of a Swedish Torch, I just haven't seen one made of a log.

    I drill a hole in the center and make a single X across the log. You just light the candle and drop it into the hole and stand back.

    A good sized log like that will burn most of the night.

    I make a bunch of them each year and throw one in the trailer for each camp.

    Swedish torch log style?

    I have seen em made with bundles of smaller logs using a half length one in the center.

    Once burning you can use the top to cook on like a stove sort of.

    Also serves to get the flame off of wet stuff like swamp or snow.

    Here's a crude one we set up. Sharpened four medium sized logs and hammered into the ground. Definitely better to saw the top ends.
