The appealing design doesn’t leave you wanting for quality.  Each fire pit is meticulously hand crafted by a Mennonite trained expert craftsman.  Using the heaviest gauge metal used in any fire pit on the market, the one quarter inch thick steal ensures you will be enjoying this functional art piece for years to come.
