Bear firepit made for 14ga steel Outdoor

49 Like

This is my firepit design for the friendly competition on the forum. I cut this on my Crossfire PRO. You'll need 4 pieces of 31x47" of 14ga steel. You will need to cut 2 of the main bear designs. The slots are sized for 14ga steel so if you want to do thicker, you'll need to resize. This is a no weld design. Really is beautiful with the fire inside and really big. I added a chair in one of the pictures for scale. I did throw in a couple pieces of angle iron just to give a little more airflow, but you can just cut a few with scrap steel and bend them to do the same thing. if you have any questions, please just message me on the forum.

    Did you do anything to protect it from rust?

    I actually rusted mine with hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, & salt. If you paint use I would recommend high temp paint.

    Dang it's like 112 inches when I put in sheetcam guess I'm doing something wrong, very nice though

    Did the metal distort/warp much?

    the very top above the trees sagged out a little but nothing you wouldn't expect. Everyone that comes over loves it. i keep the fire lower and not fill it up to the top. I have used mine maybe 15 times now. If you shrink the size down a little it would help, give it more strength and save a few bucks getting on 1 sheet.
