What's a Swedish flame? Something you can buy at IKEA? No sir.
Ok, so I definitely had no clue such a thing existed, but according to Comfy Home Decor, a Swedish flame is nothing but a single log that has been cut through the middle, and lit to create a cool bonfire and cooking surface.
Is it safe? I dunno, but I'm guessing since it's Scandinavian, they know a thing or two about battling cold and darkness.
To make your own you need a log, a chainsaw, perhaps a bit of flammable fuel, and a safe, open space.
If this idea indeed works, then it's the best invention ever since you don't need a whole stack of wood to keep it going. I think this is the perfect excuse to get out there this weekend and make a bonfire with friends. Who's gonna bring the marshmallows?
