Fire Pit , Circular Block help


Where can I find circular block with a circumference radus for a 36 inch fire pit. Most seem to be made for a 30 inch inside diameter fire pit.

Thanks Woftam

If you are thinking of using those decorative cast concrete blocks for a fire pit--DON'T. The heat will cause them to crack, and soon. Additionally the mortar used for a fire pit is different that mortar used for just laying block or bricks-I know from bad experience. I wound up finding some really old brick to make a fire pit, or burn pit for yard debris, and used the proper mortar the second time around. So far it's doing really well. David
