How do you make a Stone Paver Fire Pit?
We bet this is the question most asked when someone is interested in having a stone paver fire pit – “So, how do you make one?” – It is not hard; you just need to have patience and dedication to build one. For a fire pit, you need stone pavers, sand (not necessarily from the beach, a hardware store should have some), shovel, tape measure and a steel rake. You will also have to build it in a place where you can dig a little. Remember not to make one next to any trees or flammable stuff.
1- Place your stone pavers in a circle shape with the size of the wood you are going to use. Different people use various sizes of wood, but the average circle diameter of a fire pit is 38 or 40 inches. (This is one stone layer, you are going to add the second one later)
2- When you finish making your perfect circle, go ahead and dig a 12-inch hole inside your circle radius.
3- At the bottom, pour 2 to 4 inches of sand and tamper it, making sure everything is flat.
4- This is when you start your second paver stone layer. There should be a 12-inch distance between the top of the stone pavers and the sand layer, so if you are missing some paver stone to complete the distance, you can add a third layer.
5- Put 3 or 4 logs in a pile inside your fire pit. If it ends up lower than your stone paver wall, go ahead and add more sand to the bottom.
