This modern concrete fire pit can be built over a single weekend and is a great centerpiece for outdoor entertaining. This isn’t a difficult project, but it’s time consuming and labor intensive.
We 3d printed 3 different parts of the fire pit and then made silicone molds of the prints. We used Quikrete 5000 concrete mix in the silicone molds to make the final blocks for the Firepit.
Fire is a great way to enjoy the view. If you have a lot with a view, locate fire features at the edge of the property in a place where people will have a chance to enjoy the fire while taking in the surroundings.
Concrete fireplaces and fire pits should be constructed carefully. When exposed directly to high amounts of heat, the moisture trapped inside concrete can expand and cause the concrete to crack and in extreme situations, explode.
