20 inch diameter ring with screened plasma cutout pattern and footrest surround. Four nice legs. Heavy, removable, screened/domed lid for ember containment.

Saw this in hardware store, cheap at 200 bucks. People are buying such pits for sitting around, with the neighbors, in the cool of the evening. Possible ideas for your next propane tank salvage project?

That looks pretty nice. You mist have missed my previous threads about making some firepits out of the end caps from 250-gallon propane tanks. Here's some pics.

I even made a fixture for grinding the cuts.

I've never been asked to make a cover for a firepit. I think that would be a LOT more challenging than making the pit itself.

Dang it, I just wasted several minutes playing that video over and over. It just cracks me up that I thought up something like that, built it, and it actually works.

I watch the video over and over again thinking "look at all that room, with all those toys, and not a single soul around to tell you what to do."
