Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

I see this month's Handyman Mag has a story on building a fire pit. Seems like they are becoming very popular all of a sudden.

Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

Did you end up making a fire pit @aly? Or still on the to-do list?

Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

One idea is to use an old hot water heater, it is quite a bit of work, but is very effective

Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

I made mine fire pit from a truck rim and a car rim welled together. I also weled some small square steel plates on the inside to cover the holes in the truck rim so the hot coals would not fall out. I Also made the area for the Fire pit, it was were we had an above ground pool. So I named the area Wasapool...... Have fun....
