Every once in a while I find myself needing to make something useful and today's project is so clever.
You can find the instructions here. I did mine a little differently than the instructions. I used a baby food jar, she used a jelly jar. She said to use sand paper on the top of the jar to strike the matches, I think that might be just for the strike anywhere matches. I tried it and my matches would not light using sand paper so I just cut the stuff off the side of the box. These is also a little hole in the top so you can just tip the matches out one at a time. You could take your drill and drill a little hole but of course my drill is never charged so I took a phillips screwdriver and hammer and just made a hole large enough for the matched to slide though.
Now I am all set for a bon fire and have matches for at home and out at the lake.
