Fire Pit Made From Water Pressure Tank
"I had to replace the pressure tank in my water system and didn't want to throw the old tank away, so I decided to convert it into an outdoor fire pit," says James Kennedy, Chino Valley, Ariz.
  He cut 4 large openings in the sides and fitted a piece of 6-in. dia. thin wall steel tubing into a hole on top to allow smoke to vent.
  "The project took about half a day to complete, and my only cost was for some welding and cutting materials and a little paint," says Kennedy. "I plan to line the bottom of the tank with fire brick, so it won't burn out any time soon.
  "A word of caution - if you want to do a project like this, don't use a tank if it ever contained a flammable product."
