Funky Dog Wood Burning or Gas Burning Fire Pit

The Funky Dog Outdoor Fire Pit is a high quality, hand cut and crafted fire pit designed for years of heavy use. This is one of the most unique fire pits on the market. Every Fire Pit is individually signed and numbered by it's designer, Rick Wittrig. Each Fire Pit is made from one quarter inch (6.35 mm) thick carbon steel. This is by far the heaviest gauge metal used in any fire pit available today. The sturdy construction assures you of having this functional art for many years to come. They have an iron oxide finish/patina on the outside which will darken a little with time then become permanent. The interior is coated with a high temperature resistant paint and has an 1-1/2" rain drain in the bottom. This high quality fire pit requires no maintenance and has an overall height of  24" and a diameter of 36".  Measurements may vary since each fire pit is hand made. The Funky Dog Fire Pit is not just a practical fire pit - it is a piece of art in its own right.  The base of the fire pit has an inside weld to give this fire pit a smooth and clean look on the outside, while maintaining the integrity of the piece.

Artisan crafted fire screens with a wood loading hatch are available for most models. All designs are easily adapted to propane or natural gas equipment. Each fire pit is hand crafted and individually numbered on a small brass plaque attached to the base ring. Rick Wittrig was born and raised in a tiny Mennonite farming village amid the endless sea of corn and soybeans that is the Illinois prairie. He learned steel fabrication and carpentry skills building farm equipment and homes. Admiring the strong work ethic, high quality products and integrity of the craftsman with whom he worked, Rick carries those values into creating his functional steel art. He now lives on Barton’s Creek in Tennessee with his family and enjoys making beautiful fire pits for others to enjoy.
