Thought this was kinda neat and useful so I figured I would pass it along.
My wife was browsing the Internet and came across a website showing how you could make a tiki torch from a wine bottle. This peaked her interest as she has plenty of empty wine bottles 🙂 and likes tiki torches. I looked at the project as a way to create a pretty durable method for lighting should the grid go down.
Well – a few of these have been made and so far work pretty good. One complaint is the wick is not long enough to reach all of the fuel. Looking to get either a longer wick or make one.

PS – Yup….this will work with a Budweiser bottle as well.
