Our fire-pit has paid for itself several times over the years. It has been used heavily and will bring enjoyment and family togetherness for many more years.
We started with a used tractor tire rim we bought from a tractor supplier. We also bought bricks for the base and trapezoid-shaped patio blocks. You will need anywhere from 40-65 patio blocks depending on the size of your tire rim. The amount of bricks for the base will depend upon the size base you wish to have. We used spray paint to plan the area we wished to build the pit. Another item you will need is crushed stone.
Next, the rim was placed on the bricks and the trapezoid-shaped patio blocks were placed around the rim. Remember to stagger them as you work upwards.
