This sturdy looking cinder block fire pit has a huge air inlet at the bottom to make sure the fire can roar! This is good news, because look at the size of those logs in the background.

We’re not sure burning wood so close to a sidewalk is a great idea, but you can’t argue with how great the fire pit turned out. This person created air inlets by putting one of the cinder blocks on it’s side. Very cool!
The lava rocks add a nice touch to this geometrically pleasing concrete block fire pit.We’re not sure what kind of cinder blocks they used, but it created a very smooth exterior. There is also plenty of space to put your cold beverages!
The Blue Brush Burner
We really like the red brick at the base of this fire pit. It’s still a mystery how the creator got the cinder blocks that interesting shade of green, but you can’t argue with results.
The Backyard Beast
We’re not sure if this one is a DIY fire pit or not — the construction quality looks too good. We’ll give the creator the benefit of the doubt, but it’s obvious that he or she can make great things with her hands. The color is also pleasing to the eye and really makes the lawn surrounding it pop.
