Hello, dear readers and homemade people!
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “HomeMadeModern” will tell you how he made a portable hearth out of old car disks (a good example of waste disposal).
This project is quite simple to manufacture, and can be easily repeated in the” summer “conditions. Despite the welding machine used by the master, it is quite possible to do without it.
Materials necessary for homemade work.
– Old rims, sheet steel
– Bolts, nuts, steel angle, wire
– Abrasive “coral” cleaning disc
– Spray paint.
Tools used by the author.
– Grinder, cutting and grinding discs
– Screwdriver < br> – Drill bits for metal – – Welding machine – – Welding mask – – Scissors for metal – – Spring clamps – – Tape measure, marker
– Digital infrared thermometer.
At the dump, the author found several burnt rims. A partially burnt condition will make it easier to remove old paint.
Scissors for metal the author removes the rubber residues and bites the steel cords left over from the tires. For thick cables, you will have to use wire cutters.
With the help of a grinder, unnecessary elements are cut off.
After that, a disk cord brush is put on, which removes the remnants of rust and old paint. Don't be too scrupulous at this stage. It is enough to remove what is already ready to crumble itself.
Upper part the hearth is made from trimmed 5 mm sheet steel, so there will be a small space at the top of the hearth perimeter, a kind of “hot” table, on which you can attach a coffee pot or something like that.
In the old ruler, the master drills a couple of holes so that it can be adapted to an impromptu compass. Also, a hole is made in the center of the circle, and a self-tapping screw is screwed into it.

It is easier to do this if you first walk the tool on one side of the sheet, then turn it over to the other side and finish the work.
the steel sheet is somewhat rusty and should be cleaned with a coral abrasive disc . In addition, you need to chamfer the edges of the disc, removing burrs.

If your technical arsenal does not have a welding machine , you can drill holes in the plate and screw it to the base with ordinary bolts.
Next master cuts out another steel circle, which will serve as the bottom of the container, and accumulate ash on itself.
This circle welded to the bottom of the disc.
Now you should hoist one disc on top of another and check how well they fit together. But even with a good “docking”, both parts of the structure should be fixed to each other. The author solves this problem in the way that he welds three steel rods to the edge of the rim of the lower tire from three sides.
Excess rods are cut off, and both parts of the structure are connected to each other. This is a collapsible design that simplifies its transportation, maintenance and storage.
At the end of the project, the finished product should be coated with a heat-resistant spray paint. The master uses Krylon high heat max, which is able to withstand temperatures up to 600-650 degrees Celsius. This spray paint is quick-drying: 15 minutes is enough to give your grill, barbecue or old barbecue a great look.
It remains only to install the finished product on an insulating base. This moment is mandatory when using the hearth on verandas and other sites with wooden flooring.
The author uses a fiber cement slab as such a bedding.
Using the waste material (left over after CNC processing) as a stencil, the craftsman creates a decor element on the slab, working with the same brand of Krylon spray paint, but this time with premium spray paint. This type of paint has excellent adhesion and adheres even to difficult surfaces such as, for example, plastic or cement board.
The hearth structure is assembled in the center of the slab in a couple of minutes.
Surprisingly, after measuring with a pyrometer the temperature of the base and the upper part of the fireplace after an hour of burning of the fireplace, it turned out that the temperature difference was significant. The lower part of the structure, compared to the upper, practically did not heat up (76 against 215 degrees Celsius).
Here is such a cozy interior of an open gazebo obtained by the master.
Thank the author for the simple design of the home garden.
Good mood, good health, and interesting ideas to everyone!
