I love it when someone else has gone before me and gotten the trial and error out of the way. That is what Instructables has done for us. They have taken the guess work out of making this fire pit and I am grateful for the avoided heartache. Working with flagstone will suck up your time (each pieces size and thickness is different) but they look awesome. Pavers are easier and uniform but it all depends on what look you are going for.
