  • This is a super setup!! Wonderful job! Which RYOBI tools were most helpful in making this?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 11, 2018

  • The 3 new cordless drills we bought. They had no trouble driving screws into oak. We will be purchasing more drills and some impact drivers among other tools. We also have 2 corded grinders and a random orbit sander. We will be purchasing those in the plus 1 very soon.

    • Sounds like you had all the right tools for the job!

  • Great job on this shelf! It's the perfect size! Did you modify the plans to make it your own?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 11, 2018
    • Thanks! There were no set plans when making this. Just a random picture from the Mrs and then took off from there.

    • Well you executed perfectly!
      By RYOBI NATION, on July 17, 2018

  • Really cool!  my wife would love that.  I just so happen that I have some scrap wood also.  might give it a shot this weekend.

    • Do it! Super easy brownie points and if you have 3 rolls of toilet paper you have yourself dimensions haha!

  • This turned out wonderfully! What was your favorite part of this build?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 11, 2018
    • Thanks! Easily the most satisfying step was sliding the box spring and mattress into the frame and it fitting perfectly! Oh and not having to withdraw a couple thousand dollars from the bank account to get my wife the bed she was dreaming of haha!

    • That's truly the best feeling!!

  • Wow, we can't believe this was made from pallets! It looks so great!! And even better that they were free!!

    • It's amazing how well just recycled rough sawn timber comes up when you put it through a ryobi thicknesser!

  • This tool station provides the perfect amount of organization, and it looks great too!!
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 11, 2018

  • That’s really cool, are the tools hung up there just by hooks & things made for pegboard or did you make custom holders? I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with mine as my collection gets bigger, I don’t wanta wait till I get overwhelmed. Thanks 
    By Lionhart09, on July 12, 2018
    • Hello, the awesome thing about this concept is as you add more tools you can rearrange the way they hang to fit more. Tools are just hanging by standard pegboard hooks from the hardware store.
      By Anglofurnishings, on July 12, 2018
    • Thanks for the info, looks like I could  incorporate some of your ideas into my shop.  Happy Building!

  • A beautiful backyard addition! Great work on this piece!
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 11, 2018
    • Thanks RN--- this definitely is one of those "high impact" show pieces!
      By dwizeman, on July 11, 2018

  • Did you buy a pre-mix of glass rocks to get that color blend?
    By dandantheman, on July 14, 2018
    • Hey Dan -- great question. I played around with different looks until i got the blend i liked. I bought mixes off amazon and walmart. I went for some as the bigger 1/4 inch size mixed with smaller pieces. I also bought some that were reflective, so they would cath the sun during the day, and glow with the fire at night!
      By dwizeman, on July 16, 2018

  • I like the look of the stacked stone blended into the smooth top.. Also--- That beast looks really sturdy, but heavy too-- have you thought about how you are going to move it when you need to?
    By brickdavey, on July 14, 2018
    • I was wondering the same?! the pictures make it look like it is floating?
      By bradman88, on July 17, 2018
    • under the frame i attached 4 2" casters that are slightly recessed. I knew i would wan to be able to move it around when cleaning off the patio, but not have this thing sitting on huge wheels looking unnatural. 
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018

  • Did you use metal screws or the regular hardie backer screws to attach the board to the frame?
    By love2build, on July 18, 2018
    • Hey there L2B! What i did was use clamps to hold the hardie in place. Then pre-drilled with high speed titanium metal bits. Then came behind it with the self tapping star screws that you would normally use to attach the hardie to.
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018

  • Looks fantastic! I was looking to make something like this and I found that the burners were very expensive. Where did you purchase yours?
    By kevwal, on July 18, 2018
    • Hey Kevwal, thanks for your comment. I searched around a bit. A struggled between how turnkey, vs piecing it together. ultimately i went with something like this: https://www.amazon.com/American-Fireglass-Stainless-Burner-8-Inch/dp/B0051J1POK/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1532011136&sr=8-5&keywords=american%2Bfireglass%2Bh%2Bburner&th=1 
      The "H" burner blends well and covers a nice area. You can probably get it cheaper, but this has worked well,  and hasn't showed signs of rust despite leaving it uncovered in the rain.
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018
    • Thank you! That's exactly what I need.
      By kevwal, on July 19, 2018
    • good luck and if I can be of any help, do not hesitate to let me know!
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018

  • What did you use as a frame to mount the hardiebacker? Is that wood or is it metal?
    By Kirks-Works, on July 18, 2018
    • Hey Kirks, This was something i was going back and forth on upfront. In my head i knew i could knock out a simple box frame using something like 2x2's or 2x4's. Then though about wrapping it in some fireproof  insulation to deal with the heat, etc.. 
      Ultimately I used 1" tube iron, welded together. This was a little out of my wheel house, so i took a hand drawn schematic (i'll upload) to a local welding shop, and traded a case of beer for their work :) 
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018

  • What are the dimensions? I was looking at some in stores, but they all seemed really low, especially for the little ones around our house.
    By love2build, on July 19, 2018
    • I ran into the same issue-- which is ultimately why i built one of my own. I decided to build it a little taller than standard fire pits you would see ad Home Depot. This way kids aren't always pulling the glass out. I also chose not to give it a long shelf on top, so my little ones don't smack their heads into it. 
      Actual Dims: L48" x W26" x H29"
      By dwizeman, on July 19, 2018

  • hi dwizeman, really nice job on the fire pit. I have been weighing buying one at the store, vs building my own. I think this tipped the scales towards me building it. Great job!
