You can transform an old satelite dish into a nice backyard fire pit by doing this simple instructable. I hope you have fun and
success with this project, and that your hotdogs and marshmallows don't turn into smoldering black piles of gunk :)
Stuff You Need:
Enough stone blocks(all the same size) to make a square that's 2-2 1/2 feet on each side
Unwanted home satelite dish
Note: all pictures came from the Internet
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Base
Take the stone blocks and make the previously mentioed square. The broadest sides should be facing the ground and the sky.
Step 2: Dishular Preparation
Remove all parts of the antenna. Do the same to the stand.
Step 3: Finish the Pit
Place the now standless and antennaless satelite dish on the stone square. The bump should be facing the ground, and the dip facing the sky. In short, it should look like a bowl. The stone square should support the sides of the satelite dish.
Note 1: It won't look like this picture, but I needed a picture, so I got it off the Internet
Note 2: Depending on where you are, it may be required by the law to have a lid for your fire pit.
Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
