The only thing you've done under a minute is lie, and probably sex too.I have used sycamore for the board, spindle and handle. I got a fire after a bit of tuning up. I had pepperoni with me so I greased the top of the spindle so it wouldnt burn further into the handle. Once I had everything tuned up and ready I had a fire in under a minute. Plus if you cant spot sycamore in the woods you shouldnt be there.
