Default New pit

I'm no pro builder but have a welder and some tools and said, why not? This was my first build ever and I learned a lot (read "I screwed up more than once, thank God for grinders....). This one was for a friend but I'm going to build one more for another friend then one for me. Lord knows I need another bbq pit... :) If this one was any indication I think it will get easier with each one...

It's far from perfect but like I said, I learned a lot and I'm no pro welder/fabricator.

(I know there's no thermometer, long story....getting rectified this weekend but it worked out to get it delivered this weekend)

Man, I wish I wasn't a pro welder but had some tools and a nice pit like that. Nice job.

I think your build looks great. I wish I could make stuff. It seems like no matter what I ever try to fix ends up going in the trash as I always make the situation worse
