Salvage a tree trunk or another large chunk of wood that’s cut flat on the bottom so it will stand on end. With a chainsaw, cut an “X” across the top. Then drill two two-inch holes, one on the side and one on the top. The holes should connect in the center of the log. Air easily flows through the side hole with the flame coming through the top.
The sawdust from the drilling becomes a ready-made source of fuel to warm the spirits or fill the belly. The beauty of this fire pit is that you don’t have to keep stoking it since the fire burns from the inside out, giving heat for hours.
