I have a wooden deck in the backyard and a fire pit out there. The fire pit has a 1.5" hole in the bottom for air circulation and to prevent water from building up in there. When I use it, the embers drop down to the deck below. Not a good combination obviously. Last winter when I used it, I put an extra piece of ceramic tile that I had from when my house was built under the hole to collect the embers. Worked until the last time that I used it and the tile cracked. Made a nice pop too when it cracked.
I haven't used the fire pit since then but I thought I needed a better solution.
Would something like this work? If not, any suggestions?
