Default Couple of portable fire pits I made *Updated pic 5/11*

I've seen versions of the Jeep one before but I changed it up to make it easier to put together. Instead of pins I made it so it slides together with slots. Both break down and store flat for easy transport.


I made this one from an image I made a while back and just put it onto a blank fire pit end.

Not saying these are bad, but the next set you should leave an extra tab on top for a press break stiffener or weld on a peice of angle iron. I wouldn't expect those sides to stay flat with any sort of decent fire.

I really like them, so this is constructive criticism, if I had the cash I'd have you make me a set too.

Other guys that have made them don't have much of a problem with them warping too bad. I would imagine if you had a huge raging fire it would warp some. I would also think that one piece of angle or one bend along the top wouldn't do much unless you put one on top and bottom, and even then it could twist or buckle. But I made these to be quick to make and easy to set up and store.

This is the style that I'll be making anyway for my back patio later when it's above freezing. 1/4 plate with a grill. Not portable. Lol

Thanks. I'm not charging anything really. The jeep one is for me to keep in my motorhome and the other one is for a friend of mine. If someone is interested in having me make something they can pm me and we can discuss what it is they want.
