Below once more it can be as big or small as you desire. Simply take security into factor to consider. After our dimensions for size we note those corners of the contest. Now before we start to dig out our fire pit, exactly how much down should we dig it?
Dig your fire pits no deeper than 3/4 of your arm's length. Why that deep? Because occasionally you'll require to cleanse it out. Clean out the ashes, dust and more. In this manner you don't have to get down in it to cleanse it out. You'll still be able to reach to the bottom of it with your arm and even a mop and get pan.

Now fill in the remainder of the bottom or floor of the pit. To make it fit right you might need to cut a few of the blocks. Usage stonework saw for this. Once you have your pit flooring completed, begin lying and stacking the block around the sides of the pit.
Depending on exactly how you wish to make it at the edges you can either join them together or overlap them. However to join them you'll have to make custom cuts to the blocks. Continue filling out the sides of the pit by stacking your blocks.

From right here you can do points like creating a spruce up around the fire pit. Once again your creative imagination is the limitation.
