Matchsticks ... there was a "how's it made" episode about those. Look it up, they named all the ingredients for the striker head. I don't remember what kind of wood, any kind would work. I do remember that they dipped the "lightable" end in wax first. The wax would burn before the wood, giving it a few seconds longer burn time. They do the same thing with paper book matches.

The problem will be making the striker head. Buying all the ingredients will likely put you on a "watch list" somewhere.
