Introduction: PUMP ME UP AIR Patio Fire Place

About: Just a normal guy trying to make it in life .Good paying job but mindless sometimes .I enjoy making things in my garage to keep my mind going .. Its fun making something new but its more fun taking something…
These patio fire places are a great idea to have a nice quick relaxing camp fire outside on your patio or deck. I have found that if there is no breeze outside and the air is still its hard to keep a fire going.
I spent many nights fanning a newspaper trying to keep it going which kinda took the fun relaxing part out of it so this is a idea i came up with .

Step 1: Main Pan

First i took the main pan and drilled a 5/8s hole in the center.

Step 2: Brackets

I cut 2 pieces of angle iron 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 by 2 inches. Drilled a 1/8 inch hole in one side on both pieces and 5/8 hole in the other 2 sides.

Step 3: Air Tube Parts

All parts are 5/8 black iron piping. 1 tee,2 4 inch nipples, 2 end caps, 1 90 degree elbow, a 6 inch nipple and a 8 inch nipple.

Step 4: Drilling Air Flow Holes

I drilled 10 1/8 inch holes evenly down the length of the tube and tee

Step 5: Assembling the Brackets

I cut slots in the 5/8 s holes on the 2 brackets to make it easier to center the tube .and for welding it together .I used two 1/8 inch by half inch screws and bolted the 2 brackets 3 inches from either side of the center hole.

Step 6: Welding in the Air Tube

Put in air tube and welded it in

Step 7: Bottom Air Tube

I screwed in a 6 inch nipple then the 90 degree nipple and a 8 inch nipple

Step 8: Trying It Out

This is what it looked like before using the pump

Step 9:

A 3 dollar air mattress pump from walmart should do the trick..

Step 10: Pump Away

Give it a few pumps

Step 11: Ta Dah!!

Now thats a bonified campfirrrrr right there !!! lol
