How do I plan to make it through the winter? Bohemian Alp Designs' Lord of the Rings One Ring firepit, many gallons of hot cider & whiskey, and a recording of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" warped to sound like Gollum is singing it. A sexy LARP interaction with Liv Tyler as Arwen would help too.
While the firepit doesn't manage to replicate the golden shine of the One Ring, it does do fair justice to Sauron's Tengwar-scripted Black Speech engraving. And in all fairness, 16-gauge steel is probably a better metal choice for housing burning wood anyway. The ring measures 26" in diameter.
