    Put the wood and excess oxygen in a closed container that contains some device that can create a spark (to start the reaction).

    Determine the mass of container + contents.

    Start the reaction and, after everything has cooled down, again determine the mass of container + contents.

    If the two masses are the same, you have demonstrated that the reaction obeys the Law of Conservation of Mass.
