This is a fun little item that I came up with awhile back. I combined slabrolling (the base) and throwing (to make the cup part).When all were stiff enough to handle I cut the cup in half, joined it to the slab base, scruffed up a spot for the rock to go (better adhesion) . The fun part is finding flat sided rocks at the beaches of Lake Superior. Always have my eyes peeled~ I suppose you could pry this rock off (carefully!) and put a favorite rock of your own on if you wanted to.

The idea of these is to use strike anywhere matches and the rock as a striker. Hang it by your woodstove or anywhere matches come in handy. Some folks put them in their bathroom... sulfur apparently takes care of certain unwanted odors :)

You can find strike anywhere at places like Ace Hardware or camping stores. Though harder to come by these days they still make them and are making a comeback due to popular demand. The matches that come with your striker are mostly for show... don't be disappointed if they don't light. They've been exposed to the damp air in my shop (even though I try to keep them fresh and dust free in a container).

They are 6" long, 4" across at the widest. Rawhide lace to hang from and the (Lake Superior) rock is glued with E-6000, the best industrial strength glue I know of.
