Celebrate with your friends and family around this impressive fire pit. This original design is made to order by craftsman in the heartland of America and are constructed from heavy duty ¼ " thick mild carbon steel making them the most durable steel fire pit made anywhere. The inner bowl has a high temperature resistant coating applied to it and comes with a 1 ½” diameter rain drain. The outer iron oxide patina is maintenance free and the fire pit can be left outside in all weather conditions.
