[vermont] Fire Pit

One other DIY project I've been working since Memorial Day is a fire pit for the back yard. It's functional:


But you'd look at it in daylight and say, "Well, clearly the person making this had no idea what they were doing." Which is true. I've read a bit here and there but really, my only goal is to have something that (a) contains a fire, and (b) doesn't explode in people's faces. Which, apparently, is a danger if you use only river rocks or stones that contain water- the rocks heat and split in an explode-y manner.

I put together some bricks with cement (oops, should have used mortar). And I'm adding in larger stones around the outside to make it stronger and prettier. Should have this totally done by... October?
