Do You Want to Make a Buddy Burner from a Can? Here You Go

You never know when you might need a buddy burner! 

The Crazy Russian Hacker has made quite a name for himself creating very popular DIY videos all over YouTube. Now, in one of his most recent clips to hit the Internet, he is going to show us all how to make a very simple buddy burner that could be used as a stove or just a longer lasting fire source when or if you need it.

A buddy burner is simply just a can filled with wax soaked cardboard. It sounds fairly easy, but if you don’t know what you are doing, it’s a lot harder than it looks. Just follow along with this video below and you will be on the right track.

As you can see, it’s fairly easy to do. I think a pair of scissors would be critical to making your own, but as long as you have a can, a source of candle wax, and a burnable material that you can find a way to tear or piece apart, you should be good to go at least for a little while.

Either way, videos like this are good little nuggets just to store away in the back of your mind just in case you need it one day. Who knows, the zombies might be just around the corner.
