There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you can build something with your own two hands. Kevin Kohler “The Backyard Scientist" demonstrates how to build a simple DIY multicolor fire tornado with no moving parts. The Backyard Scientist is back with a new trick up his sleeve, and this one never gets old!

This homemade multicolor fire tornado spins around and weaves itself together with absolutely no moving parts. All you need to do is cut up a glass cylinder and then offset the half-cylinders a little bit to let air flow do its thing to create the fire vortex. The design uses split glass tubes that create convection currents around the fire and various fuel sources that burn with different colored flames. No moving parts, no fans, no squeaky bearings, just fire and forget!

Watch as the <a href="" target="_blank">Backyard Scientist</a> messes around and burns different chemicals, like methanol, lithium, and boric acid, in order to showcase the different colors, like bright red and green, that can be found in a fire tornado.

This amazing guy will take you on a magical journey and show you that anything is possible, you just need to have a little patience, talent and knowledge and mix it all together. He will take you down the road, step-by-step, slowly explaining his every move, and eventually he will show you a very neat way to <a href="" target="_blank">build your own fire tornado</a>!
