a portable metal receptacle for burning charcoal or coal, used for cooking, heating, etc.
from the French brasier, from braise 'live coals'"
The final product is portable, can burn charcoal and wood, and the materials for this project are about as close to free as you can get, I hope you like it!
Step 1: Materials
@ A Pocket Knife
@ 4 Machine Bolts or Screws, make sure that they have flat ends.
@ A Handful of Nuts, at least 4, more if you prefer.
@ A Nail, preferably the same width as your nails/bolts.
@ An Empty Soup Can (Or Larger, It's up to you.)
@ A Hammer
@ A Hacksaw (Optional, a Dremel would also work well, see step 4)
@ A Vice is very helpful, or some other gripping mechanism to hold the can steady.
