Easy to put together only confusion that I had was that the quantity of stone needed refers to the inside ring diameter

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobP Great looking fire pit if you don't look too close
Received the fire pit components on a pallet on time by Etes trucking company. We were able to assemble it in about two hours on a 70x70 concrete pad that we had poured about 4 days before. Alligning everything and picking out which blocks we wanted on the first and second rows based on how they looked took a little time, but we all know how our wives are about things like that. As indicated we received two extra blocks for the top in case there was shipping damage. There wasn't any damage but some of them looked better than others due to pin head size holes across some of the surfaces. We ended up using twelve 50lb bags of gravel, much more than we expected, but you can see how that looks in the attached picture. Will definitely be enough to protect the concrete pad and the stones on the sides. The only complaint we had was that some of the stones in the first and second row really need some touch up so they don't look like cinder blocks. You can see that in the picture. A spray of some kind that you could use to cover the gray cinder blocks to make it all brown would really help the final look of the fire pit. Over all we are very pleased with how the final product looks and will be having our first fires in it this weekend in the Poconos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kschool This product seems rugid and a nice size
I just finished this fire pit this weekend and it looks great. It is tought to get the stones exactly 24" from the center pin to make the circle perfect. you need to get the bottom pavers perfect so that the cap pavers on top line up since they are cut to line up with each other. But so far the pit looks great, only time will tell if it holds up to the weather. I dug out 5-6 inches of the ground 70" diamaeter and filled in 2"-3" of modified stone and then 1-2" of sand to level out the first layer of blocks. Looks great and it is a signficant size, so it does not look like a little wishing well in the back yard. Love it!! It is pricy for 36 blocks and a steel ring however!

Fire pit was surprisingly clean and undamaged upon arrival. Had to dig a good sub base for it but the pit looks amazing. Originally tried to buy all materials separate and raw so I could make it myself DIY, but in the end the 700$ after shipping and taxes was cheaper than if I bought all the materials separately. Great vibe to the back yard and great times had by all so far who have enjoyed it. This pit will be standing 50-70 years from now if no one tears it down, that's how well built it is.

My husband bought/built this firepit last week--it turned out beautifully and works great! It did take him several hours to get it 'just right' so that the top stones fit on nicely. He used almost three tubes of adhesive and many bags of pea gravel to complete. We had our first fire in it two nights ago; the larger size looks great and allows for lots of neighbors to sit around and enjoy. The finishing of the stones could certainly be improved (why I did not rate a 5 on quality)--once assembled, you can still see some 'unfinished' concrete at the edges of the blocks. However, I'm hoping this will be less visible as the firepit weathers over time. Overall, we love our firepit and look forward to many years of use!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrockLanders Great purchase
I ordered the pit online and it arrived at the store on a skid. You will need either a pickup truck or will need to take a couple of trips. The stone wall comprises of 24 decorative stone blocks comparable in size/weight to a normal cinder block. Then there are 14 stone caps (2 extra). So there is a lot of weight here when transporting it. Building it is very simple and took my time to make sure I didn't cut any corners. Just follow the video instructions given on the HD site. Digging and leveling the base took the majority of the time due to some trial and error. No biggie. It called for 6 cubic feet of stone/gravel overall. I used 9 cubic feet in all and used pea gravel. Now comes the real work - building some landscape around the pit. This pit is sturdy and should hold up over time. Happy with my purchase.

The kit was easy to assemble. Got it done in one afternoon. Looks fantastic! Provides wonderful heat for all around. Used the pea gravel in & around the pit that someone suggested & it's worked out well. Only suggestion... The pit is brown but you can see the gray cinder block on some of the outside edges. Could use a better paint job. Overall we are very happy with it & enjoying it this summer.
