Campfire Starters - stuff toilet paper rolls with dryer lint. You can even roll and wrap in newspaper. Toilet paper rolls and dryer lint are an inexpensive DIY project - in fact free and you are recycling!
I have enjoyed looking at everybody's fantastic projects on lj so much, so I though you all might be interested in this wood strip canoe that I built several years ago. It is a redbird style long and made from sugar pine scraps that I rip.
