Create your own homemade matches with potassium chloride and red phosphorus. match image by Henryk Olszewski from Fotolia.com
Until the mid-1800s, lighting a fire was a painstaking and frustrating process. Tinder—shredded wood pulp, dried grass or wool—had to be ignited with sparks created by striking a coarse stone against steel then stoked with oxygen into a small flame until hot enough to light firewood. Matches were an improvement but often dangerous, because they were made with highly combustible yellow phosphorus. The safety match was invented by a Swedish professor in 1844 and is still in use today. You can make your own strike-anywhere matches, but exercise the utmost caution: the chemicals used to make them are extremely hazardous.

Preheat your oven to 150 degrees F.

Cut your dowel rods into matchsticks by nicking with a small knife and snapping into 2- to 3-inch lengths.
