How to Build a Swedish Fire Torch

by on Jan 22, 2014


Whether it’s for camping or enjoying in the back yard, a Swedish Fire Torch is a lovely way to enjoy a flame and maybe make a S’more or two. The editors of Smart Bushcraft explain that it only takes a small of space and, because of its vertical construction, it’s a great fire to build in the snow. It begins with a good-sized, flattish log (if you want to put a pot or pan on top of it) that’s split into quarters (or sixths) and then reassembled, leaving gaps between the ‘pie’ pieces. The rest is just kindling and a match. What’s great about this method of fire building is it requires no further attention once the flame gets started, and it’s lovely to watch, which means it’s perfect for backyard parties.
