How to make compressed sawdust logs?

Answer

Making your own fireplace logs from sawdust is a neat way to re-purpose what might seem like a waste product. Mix together sawdust and shredded newspaper in about a 75/25 ratio. For each log, melt about 2 oz of vegetable paraffin in a cup of water. Mix in 2 oz of vegetable oil. Fill a greased bread pan with the sawdust and shredded newspaper mixture. Pour the water/paraffin/vegetable oil mixture onto the sawdust and shredded newspaper. Mix and incorporate. Press down to compress the log, and then let it cool and harden for at least a week before burning. It should light very easily.
