    Does anyone have any pics of natural stone fire pits? I'm looking for something a little different. Like boulders or larger stones stacked on end or a combination. I'm not really interested in stacked stone apps. Thanks in advance

    Build it outa shale, then get a really hot fire going. More bang for your buck. free fireworks with every pit built. LOL!

    gotta be careful with natural stone.

    the heat will make little pieces pop off and shoot in the air. trust me - I live in the woods and have native, wall stone all over the land.

    Architectural Stone & Landscape Design magazine recently has a nice feature on Outdoor Fireplaces. (yes I know you are axin bout fire PITS).

    Usually when I have a client that wants a fir pit, I recommend a nice copper bowl recessed in the patio.
