This was a lovely thread :D

Best I could find were the links in Post no.16.
That said, my brother said that he has a couple of old early Victorian books on the topic. I'm supposed to go across to the museum at Summerlee soon, and I might ask there and see if anyone knows someone who does this kind of thing too.

cheers,
M

Pretty illuminating stuff and some truly lovely photographs. Filling my head with ideas for the winter. May even make some more rushlights and a tin for them this year. Some of those boxes are just beautiful though.

My shiny tinderbox arrived from the US and I am chuffed to bits with it

I knocked up a case for it to make sure the lid doesn't get knocked off and to protect the finish some.

Playing with it indoors is being frowned upon...

Cheers to Toddy for the linen I made the char from.

Between a rock & hard place
Useless Factoid from the Black Country museum:
Green candles were freely issued to miners by the pit owners solely for use underground,
whilst white candles were for domestic use and had to be purchased from the company store.
So taking a few home from work was not an option. :nono:

BTW really like the design of that tin

Well I liked this thread and decided to have a try myself. I had an altoids tin and some thin stainless wire. First off I needed to remove some of the polymer coating on the tin, then I had a quick go with some wet and dry before a bit of brasso. Wilko taper candles, 2 quid a pack of 10, the tin takes 1 and half candles, with about an inch left over for other usage. I had fun and it only took 2 or 3 hours.IMG_20190902_114659676.jpg IMG_20190902_114113674.jpg IMG_20190902_113426898_HDR.jpg IMG_20190902_112511779.jpg IMG_20190902_112502498.jpg
