There is something almost therapeutic about watching a match burn away. Over the years, there have been a wide array of videos of imaginative creators using matches to build intricate models and then later setting them on fire in a blaze of glory; the ultimate art project.

With using nothing but matches, a coin,  and a few sticks, The Q, YouTuber was able to create a massive model, without any glue at all. Creating a large model of a crop harvester, with the crop included, the model was built by weaving and stacking the matches together.

As seen in The Q’s video, the collection of matches were formed into 28 classic match cubes, 2 small wheels, 2 big wheels, one wide wheel, 4 flat cubes, and 8 small cubes. Like oversized legos the matches were formed together to create the final model, taking well over 10,000 matches for the project.

Of course, even after all of that, the project had to be set on fire. As stated above, these videos have become a staple of YouTube culture and are excellent challenges for a lazy Sunday evening, requiring so little material.  

Be sure to check out the video above and let us know if you try your own project.
