Hopefully this list of wood-burning fire pits gave you some inspiration for warming up your outdoor living space. While fire pits are wonderful additions to your space, please be aware of some very important safety precautions:
- Always make sure you install a fire pit on a fire-proof or fire-resistant surface. Stone or tile patios or a lawn area cleared of surrounding grass and covered with sand is best. Before installing on a wood deck make sure your fire pit is safe for use on wood surfaces.
- Open fires create hot flames, sparks and ash that can burn you or ignite surrounding material. Consider a fire pit with a screened cover for additional protection or if you regularly have windy conditions.
- Always be careful with young children (and adults!) around any open flames. Also, most fire pit exteriors will get hot with use and can burn to the touch.
