Hello I am interested in building an outdoor fireplace. Will I be able to create one by doing the following? Or will it not be strong enough and not be able to sustain the heat.

Pleased suggest your improvements

1) build a wooden frame
2) cover wooden frame with cement board
3) plaster outside of cement board

(Does it need a steel fire box? Does it need fire bricks? Is there any special additions it needs? Does it have to be a certain type of plaster?)

Cheers
Jem
