Oooohhhh Shiny! Lets go ride bikes!!!
Wait, no. It is shiny, but come on, focus...
Right. So, my upcycled fire pit build has been a hit!
I'm still loving it too. I used it last night after dinner to stay warm while trying to catch a glimpse of the Neowise comet!
If you haven't seen it you can checkout the full build on Instructables here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Upcycle-Old-Steel-Wheels-Into-a-Fire-Pit/
But that's not what this is about. Nope, this PSA is to let you know there's now an even better-er-er version! And that better-er-er version has been entered into #TheEtsies !
The Etsies?!? Explain.
It's the second annual Etsy design award competition. Open to all Etsy sellers (shameless plug for my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/Makerneer)

OK. Good explanation. Check. What makes this one better-er-er?
Well, first off I knew where to start cutting things this time 😁.
And I upgraded the fire barrel mesh to stainless steel (Shiny!).
And I used matching bolts instead of raiding the misc fastener bin.
And the ash grate is brand new instead of the one I "borrowed" from the BBQ.
And - AND, the finish on it should last a lot longer, it's been painted with higher temp engine paint and then heated and sealed with boiled linseed oil.
