Anyone know how to make one? If so could you let me know since I would like to build one. Seems prety straight forward from pictures I have seen but would like to know the ins and outs from someone who has done one.

I read about them - and wherever I was readin had instructions but can't remember where that was. Would be cool to make one though, c'mon somebody.
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.

check out the Fire Making forum at Paleoplanet. there's a good thread over there in which a fellow calling himself "cutshirt" (real name Darrel) gives darned good instructions.....  ....found it quickly enough. that's a link to that thread.

Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
