youve seen those outdoor patio fireplace things that go from 50-100 bucks, ive built my own out of a heavy truck rim and some metal lying around the farm. welded a disc blade to the inside to cover the hub hole and lug holes. the "hand holes" are 50% covered to let air in for the fire. could also be filled with dirt and used as a planter. the legs are cut-down fence posts with flat washes welded to the bottom for feet. its heavy, about 104 pounds.

I like the idea. I may need to try this when I have the spare pieces laying around.

I took several of those retaining wall blocks and made a circle on the ground next to my patio. works very well too.

A very innovative idea! Gives the same results as the expensive ones. Let's start cooking!

Looks good! I used an old tractor rim at my parents' farm for a fire ring. The heavy steel of rim won't burn through in a year like the metal of the fire rings they sell in the stores.
