This fire pit is CNC cut from one single piece of 1/8" steel with a wild life design. Backed with a mesh to keep all contents inside, the steel is then rolled to a 24" diameter and bolted together. Painted in high heat matte black for years of use. This pit comes with the pictured base made from the same steel and painted in the same heat resistant paint. If you prefer this fire pit without the base, see our stand alone 24" fire pit.
