The Scallop/Tidal Wood Burning Fire Pit is made from one quarter inch ( 6.35 mm) thick steel. This is the heaviest gauge metal used in any fire pit by far. The sturdy construction assures you of having this functional art for many years to come. It's coated with an iron oxide patina on the outside that will darken a little with time before becoming permanent. The inside is coated with a high temperature resistant paint and has a rain drain in the bottom. And on top of all this it is Made in the USA.
Each Scallop/Tidal Wood Burning Fire Pit is handmade by a skilled metal working artist. He grew up in a Mennonite farming village nestled in the Illinois prairie. The Mennonites taught him the value of hard work in their farms and their machinists showed him the art of joining together of metals. Using brazing rods and arc welders, they repaired and built their farm equipment.Now dozens of years later, he lives and works with his family on the banks of Barton Creek in the rolling hills of Tennessee. Although the tools he uses in metal sculpture have improved over the years, the core skills learned long ago remain the same. Each piece has a brass plate with its unique number. No two pieces carry the same number. This assures your fire pit's individuality.

Very happy with the fire pit. Seems like a lifetime product, well made and solid. Shape of it gives a nice view of the fire and you can tilt the higher sides into a breeze so embers don't escape. It seems expensive, but if one considers the cost of shipping something of this size and weight and what taxes would typically be (both are included in price of the product), the price seems fair. Great example of you get what you pay for. If you want a nice one that will last, buy one of these. If you are ok with a cheap one that will rust out in no time, feel free to buy one from your local hardware store. I'm 54 and have a feeling this pit will be around after I'm not.
