Dust by friction....

So the Mrs. is out tonight, and I'm bored. You can probably guess what happens next!
A few bits of wood out of the shed, an old piece of rope from the sailing bag, and I'm all ready to make some flames!! Except unsurprisingly I'm not.
All I've succeeded in doing is making a decent amount of smoke, and some hot-ish dust, but nothing that could as yet be called an ember. I suspect my drill is too green / damp. Unfortunately I can't find anything better to use at the moment, despite living on the edge of a wood .
Perhaps if I shove all of the stuff under the sofa, when I find it again in a year, it might work!?
Any tips people?
