    Made this for a buddy who wanted a fire pit he could take apart for camping. Cut on a Torchmate 2x2, all parts interlock together, no welding required.... all notches and tabs are sized for 10ga. I used P/O mild steel.....Dave 20160425_163206.jpg

    The interlocking idea is awesome. What did you use to accurately bend each of the legs?

    Thanks, I bent the first one by hand to get the correct angle. I then used that one for comparison to bend the rest. Bent them in my home brew harbor freight press converted into my break...Dave
