It's just made of ONE laser cut sheet metal, so there's no drilling, welding or screwing needed. If you have a computer with a CAD-programm and a telephone to instruct your locksmith you will have a very nice and elegant fire bowl without putting too much effort in it!
For transport or storage this fire bowl can be disassembled very easy, so it doesn't need much space.
So let's get started:
At first you should check the measurements of your terrace to get an idea about the bowls size. My fire bowl has a diameter of 1,3 meters, I think that's a good size even to have a REAL fire;-)
After that you can think about the design. At first I thought about making a three-cornered fire bowl, which looks very aesthetic. But this only allows a much smaller fireplace compared to 5-corner-bowl with the same diameter. If you have a big terrace this design would look impressive!
I don't have that much space, so I chose to make an fife-cornered fire bowl. Of course it is also possible to design a 4-, 6-, or 8-cornered bowl.
Step 1: The Design
Its hard to "calculate" the correct measurements, so I just used the "trial and error" method:-)
After you had constructed the single part, you should assemble it to see if the parts fit together. It helps to create a "floor" plate where the bowl can stand on.
Now its time to personalize the fire bowl. You can adjust the diameter, height, form, whatever you want. Just make sure that the parts fit nicely.
Before you do the next step, try to assemble and reassemble the parts in the computer, just like you would do it in reality!
