Nicely done! I have a couple slabs of fatwood but haven't used them yet. It's cool to see just how flammable they really are.

I can't see it due to work restrictions, but there are some other good YouTube videos on using birch bark and the like with a flint steel. Watching that gave me a lot more confidence with my skills.
