Ordered this product twice and both times corner pieces aren't right. Hopefully third times a charm. We will see.

Love this firepit. Very easy to put together. We did use locktite masonary adhesive between stones in order to ensure stability. will be loving this addition to our backyard for years to come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirePitGuy Great Firepit and a fun DIY Project
I ordered this firepit kit online and it was delivered a week later. In the meantime I purchased twenty 40 lb bags of stone and two tubes of Loctite (for masonry) from my local Home Depot. I prepared the site on Saturday, digging a level area five feet square, about 3 inches below grade. I put a level layer of granite (very important to get it level, and smaller stones are easier to get level). Sunday, my wife and I finished the project in about three hours. It turned out great. After we built the walls and installed to steel box, we put about 6 or 7 inches of river rock in the pit, and dressed to granite surround with an inch or of the same river rock. We have since used it on several chilly nights and we love it. It looks great, it was fun to build, and we are very pleased with every aspect of the purchase-to-project experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim915 Nice addition to the back yard
I put my fire pit on a patio stone pad which was 80% of the work. I wasn't crazy about the steel liner that came with the kit. I work at a shop with a steel shear and break, so I had the guy make me two pieces of 11 gauge formed at a 90 degree angle and just under 12" wide. I painted it with high heat flat black paint and installed it before adding the stone cap. I also applied a concrete sealer to preserve the color.

After thoroughly looking for a nice fire pit to add to my yard, I came across the Fossill Stone square fire pit on line at Home Depot. This was exactly what I was looking for! Not your typical round pit that "everyone" has already! I purchased it on line to have it delivered to my house. As most on line purchases, you sometimes feel weary purchasing an item like this without seeing it in front of you. When the fire pit was delivered, it was everything I thought it would be! The delivery was rather quick, on a pallet and in my driveway convienently. The pallet was packaged professionally without causing any damage during transportation. Attached to the pallet was step by step instructions on properly installing my new fire pit with extra blocks. When it came time to installing my new pit, it was easier than I had thought. Follow the directions enclosed and you will not have any issues! When it was completely built, it was everything I visioned it to be adding that "Perfect Touch"! Great product Home Depot!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PhilB Looks great and top-quality
All pieces came ready to assemble and well packaged on a pallet for shipping. No stones were broken. We even had an extra top stone in the package. The instructions could be improved. It took about three hours to assemble if you set the stones and then remove a layer to add the construction stone adhesive (I used locktite).
I set mine on top of a concrete patio with a 24" square cutout for the ashes/ rain water to weep into. My base was level. The instructions were confusing at first but made more sense once I got into the precess. A video would have helped. you must take your time and do not rush. I used a rubber mallet to tap the stones and adjust as needed.
The top cap stones did not "fit" perfectly as I hoped. I had to leave about 1/4" gap between the cap stone edges. If you close the gap, the metal ring would not fit inside where the screws/metal ring would catch. Still all went together as planned and looks great.
The unit it top-quality and very eye-catching. I also called the main company who supplied this (Natural Concrete Products). They were very helpful.
