Homemade Column Fire Pit – Test Run

I wanted 2 column gas fire pits for my back patio but who knew that column gas fire pits were so expensive?!  I didn’t know that I would be looking at fire pits in the $300-400 range for the size that I wanted.

My uncle got me a subscription to Family Handyman for Christmas and their May 2019 Magazine had plans for a nice block fire pit that you could make “in 1 day!” This fire pit was more square than I wanted and used a 20# propane tank, which was much bigger than I wanted.  I want a fire pit that is easily moveable since my patio is so small I would like to tuck these fire pits out of the way when I’m not using them.

I thought if Family Handyman can make this fire pit then HOW HARD CAN IT BE?!  I’M GOING TO MAKE MY OWN!
