Build a Cool DIY Gel Fire Pit

Build a Cool DIY Gel Fire Pit

DIY gel fire pits are so cool. They don't take a ton of time or cost a boat load of money to make. Hey friend, this is Jeff from Home Repair Tutor and today I'll show you how to make sexy cement DIY gel fire pit in one day.

Plus, after watching the video I guarantee you'll be able to make your fire pit better than mine.

You'll need a few supplies. Buy some cheap plastic bowls for about $5, Pam, Quikrete Quick Setting Cement, a margin trowel, bucket, palm sander, grout sponge, 60 and 150 grit sandpaper, lava rocks, and gel fuel cans.

The plastic bowls will be used to cast your cement bowl. The beauty of the quick setting cement is that your bowl will be finished in about 5-6 hours.

The lava rocks I used can be used in fires and won't pop or explode. That's kinda important. No one wants to lose an eye because of an exploding rock.

You can find the gel fuel cans in the garden center of your local hardware store. They burn clean and won't emit a heavy smoke.

Check out my video for all the step by step details for how to make the cement bowl and gel fire pit.
