  • FirePit?

    Someone has asked me about a Firepit. Ever make one? Design one?

    I'm pretty ignorant to it. Did you manifold some log lighters? Make a pattern or shape with BI and drill it?

    Thanks.

    You are better off buying a manufactured ring.

        I'd just put some rocks in a circle. Then place some paper and wood in.
        Then put a lighter to it.

                    Even better is an unopened can of beans or soup.


                    Working in a fab shop many years ago we one of the welders decided to heat up a can of bean soup on top of the welding machine. He grounded out the machine to the metal fab table and set the heat on 50A, punched a small hole in the top of the can which he though would be enough to relieve any pressure, and was going to let it heat up for about 10 minutes. Didn't make it that far unfortunately. Somewhere about half way into the heating session the pressure went to overload and the can popped, spewing bean soup all around the shop. That welding machine smelled of Campbell's Bean Soup for the next 3 months I think.

                        Re: FirePit?

                        I recently built one and there is a long thread on here about the gas line part of the project to which many people but mainly Rick and Kevin (now gone sadly after all that argument about galv pipe ) helped out with info on how to do the gas line.

                        I wanted to design and build one that was different. I did not want an pre-made one (boring) and most designs I saw online were pretty boring - just a bunch of blocks or bricks laid in a circle.

                        I ended up making a poured concrete firepit using Sonotube forms to get a perfect circle. I then lined the outside with stone veneer (cobble type stone) harvested from my own backyard during excavation. I installed low voltage downlighting at the top and am just making a stone ring at the top out of some Costa Esmeralda quartizte (green stone with veining similar to marble but much harder).

                        The gas ring uses a fireplace type key.

                        I will post some pics of the project which may help youw with some ideas for something more unique than blocks in a circle.
