Recycled Washing machine Drum + 3 bolts + 6 nuts = Fire Pit

Forget your fancy chimneas from B&Q, i got an old washing machine drum from a washing machine repair shop, found a few old bolts to raise it of the ground, i now have a firepit to use in my yard and on my plot for the cost of a pint.

roll on long summer nights and camp-fire songs   :D

What a great idea!! I love the idea of a fire pit.. but only when my girls are in bed... no burning fingers.
