Forgive my ignorance. I've never been asked to build a fire pit so I'm not familiar with what exactly can be done. Is there any reason why a dry stacked natural stone fire pit is a problem? I was planning on using basalt. The wall would be tight with no major gaps so I don't think wind would be an issue. Just curious if the stone can handle the heat of the fire? Would I need to use a metal insert or anything like that? Also what is the best way to bond the cap stones considering the heat? Any input/advice would be much appreciated. I did a search and couldn't find much info on here. thanks.
