    So im trying to make these fire pits that seem quite popular. My first attempt seems okay for measurments and how much i bent them to fit all 4 sides together and weld. but is there some sort of formula or easier way to make all different sizes of these pits without all the guesswork? Also if anybody has any other designs or ideas of fire pits there willing to share im all ears!! Thanks any ideas would be greatly appreciated:worship:

    FIRE PIT.JPG These are some variations of a knockdown (no welding) fire pit DXF files. Also I made up 3 variations of the side plates, one with plain slots, one with bears, one with moose. It was designed for 1/4 inch thick material but it should work for thinner stock also. The "large is 37" and the "small is 31" across. You will need 1 bottom plate, 4 side plates and 4 supports. If there are any problems please let me know. Enjoy

    Mike, that is a fantastic design, so simple and easy to customize if you get the custom bug. I always do. Thanks for posting it.
    I've had so many idea in the past for Rings, but this takes the cake for simplicity... I'm going to make this a winter project. Thanks!!!
