DIY Gel Fire Pits: Easy & Cheap Sizzle for Table Tops!
So I decided to make a table top fire pit using gel fuel, a custom cement bowl, and lava rock.
This is so easy.
And it doesn't brake the bank. Once you have the plastic bowls and some simple tools you can make more of these, all you'll need is the cement.
I decided to use Quikrete quick setting cement. It comes in a small bucket which costs about $12. It's not heavy and anyone can handle it.
The gel fuel can be purchased at Lowe's in the garden section.
And the fire safe lava rocks can be found at a fireplace store. I recommend them over other rocks since lava rocks won't explode in fire.
For all the details check out my blog post cause it also has the complete video tutorial :D

I did make my own fire pit bowl last week. At Lowe's, I bought a box of terra cotta dye, right next to cement. It comes in powder form. A couple of table spoons need to be stirred into water before adding it to the wet cement, For this I just used a 16 oz can from my recycle bin. Other colors are available. It looks great. Now I just need to find proper gel. Tiki oil, which was recommended on other site doesn't burn.
