We are excited to walk you through the step-by-step of how we build each of our smokeless fire pits. This labor of love is how we ensure your fire pit meets our high standards of craftsmanship and quality from our shop, to our warehouse, to your doorstep.
Step 1: Product Design
At the very beginning of the process, we start by designing the fire pits in CAD (Computer-Aided Design). Once it is designed, we order the laser cut parts for prototypes, build the prototypes, test them and redesign accordingly.
Step 2: Laser Cutting
After the design is finalized, we order sheets of steel and laser cut each of the parts of the fire pit for assembly.
Step 3: Sand Parts
Each of our stainless products and parts need to have the same look and grain. To achieve this consistency, we run them through a wide belt sander before loading them to be assembled.
Step 4: Loading the Jig
Next, one of our dedicated team members takes all the laser cut parts that have been sanded for a particular fire pit and clamps them into a fixture (a jig) so the parts stay in place for welding.
Step 5: Welding
Once the pieces are securely held in the jig in their final positions, we weld the parts together to assemble the fire pit.
Step 6: Deburring
Deburring is the process we use to remove the sharp edges from the top of the fire pit. The laser cutting leaves the top rim especially sharp so we use a deburring tool to shave off the edges.
Step 7: Clean & Polish
After the deburring is complete, your fire pit is almost ready for shipment! But first, we clean it up. Since so many of our products are stainless steel, we take extra care to clean any imperfections or smudges that end up on the fire pit during the process. We then polish them with a stainless steel polish.
Step 8: Wrap & Pack
The last step before shipping is to strategically wrap and pack your fire pit. We wrap each fire pit in foam and then package particularly to keep them safe.
Step 9: Shipping
Finally, your fire pit is ready to be shipped. We own our warehouse where we send the fire pits once they leave our shop - both the shop and our shipping facility are right here in Lancaster, PA. From our shipping warehouse, the fire pits are sent out directly from us to you.
