Picture of Oil drum garden fire pit with a skyline..!!

I had an oil drum sitting outside rusting for the last couple of years and i never really new what to do with it.! that was until i had a brainwave and decided i wanted a fire pit for the garden.
I wanted something we could all sit around and keep warm in the summer evenings.!

Step 1: Find your oil drum.

The oil drum i had lying around was a 55 gallon oil drum which was the perfect size for a small little fire in the garden. i wanted to add a twist to the typical fires you see so i decided to add something that would keep myself and any guests entertained.! :)

I live in NJ and work in NY, I love this, not in a macabre sort of way. I have to ask though, I'm a woman and wonder how much brute strength it took to cut into the metal.

Here are some of the fire drums I have done love your work mate

Don't let the NSA see this - setting the New York skyline on fire is not a good idea these days... ;-))
