Backyard Torch

$230.00

Got A Light?

Masquerading as a giant lighter, Fred Conlon's one-of-kind tiki torch is handmade from reclaimed fuel and water canisters used by the army from WWII through the Vietnam War. Each can has a different color top, which served as a specific label: red (kerosene), blue (water), yellow (diesel) and green (gas). And keep in mind, these cans have seen a lot in their lifetime, so please expect dents, dings and scratches.Sorry, no choice of color. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Safety and Use: Fill the included fuel canister with citronella fuel oil. Never use gasoline, kerosene or any other flammable fuel. Allow wick to become completely saturated with oil before lighting. Wick should be about 2 inches above the top of the fuel canister. Place fuel canister into the top of torch, light the wick, then place the torch in a safe location - and out of the reach of children. Allow torch to completely cool before handling. Handmade in Utah.

Notes

Backyard Torch a big hit!

Comments about Backyard Torch:

I bought this for someone who is a Vietnam Veteran and he recognized the fuel can right away and was so grateful for the memories. He had tears in his eyes when he told me of his experiences in Vietnam and of the fuel cans....and says it's the most thoughtful gift he's ever received in his life. :-) I knew he'd love it!!!!

        I can't wait until my husband opens this and places it on our new patio. I think he will really like it. It's very unusual and I think it will be a conversation piece for years to come.

              I have had more comments about the torch. Everyone things that I have a WWII gas tank until I open it and light the torch. Love it!!
