Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

Good work @Super66. Looks like you can have a real roaring fire in there.

I have one of the wheel ones.  They are great and if they are car wheels the top is perfect for a cast pot to sit on so you can cook a nice stew while enjoying the fire ☺️

Hi Kay (@kaylah_rose)

Love that blue picture.

If you have any info on how it was created and how it is kept alight I would dearly love to hear about it.

Cheers

Re: DIY Fire Pit Ideas

I had a long weekend away with family and it was lovely to have an open fire. The kids loved toasting marshmallows! 

 

Anyone build a new fire pit recently or planning to put one in?

Hi, this is a fire pit made from a truck rim, Rio bar, horseshoes for the top half . Bottom half is a basic frame stand made from 25x25 steel tube and angle iron.
