Intro: Washing Machine Fire Pit
When I'm sitting around with my friends, we often talked about a fire pit on our land.
To fulfill the dream, I came up with a 0€ (also 0$) solution. An old wash drum out of stainless steel should work.
Step 1: Release Your Anger
At first, disassemble an old washing machine and save all parts you need for other projects ;-)
The important one for this project is the wash unit. This contains some plastic housing and the wash drum itself. In my case, the plastic was welded / glued together and I had to work with an hammer and a saw to free the wash drum.
Step 2: Flywheel Stand
The wash drum is normally driven by a motor on the bottom of the machine. The momentum got transfered by a belt. The Flywheel for the drum is a perfect stand for the grill.
Step 3: Have Fun
I also found a grill rack, so everything is prepared for a nice evening.
