Extremely Accurate Globe Fire Pit: The World Is Burning

 |  |  |  |  July 28, 2021

Created by West Coast Firepits using actual satellite imagery and cut with 0.02″ precision, the Earthbound firepit is advertised as “the most geographically accurate world map firepit in the world.” And that’s important, because what good is a globe firepit if you can’t use it to pinpoint where in the world Carmen Sandiego is hiding?

Crafted from 1/4″ steel, the firepits are available in 30″ and 37″ sizes ($3,000 and $3,500, respectively) and three different finishes: raw steel, black ceramic, and silver ceramic (+$500 for a ceramic finish). The base model is designed for wood burning, but propane or natural gas burning options are also available (+$450). Can’t afford a firepit that costs thousands? Just use a 55-gallon drum as I have been for years.

Are you obligated to hum Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ when you actually are starting the fire? I think we can all agree it would be a shame if you didn’t. Just like if you don’t take the opportunity to make a melancholy joke about global warming as well.
