Movie Wood Burners

The run-of-the-mill fire pits found out your local home-improvement store will warm up your patio on a cool autumn night, but these metal movie-themed burners will do the same while looking totally awesome. 

Based in Barnsley, England, Burned by Design reincarnates some of the most wicked characters in movie history as hand-crafted gas and wood burning fire pits. 

Alex Dodson, a former full-time technology teacher and self-taught welder, has made hundreds since he began the business three years ago. 

Speaking to HomeCrux, he revealed the idea came to him after a completing the painstaking process of learning to build a stove, during which he says he "set fire to my parent's garage a few times." 

"The stove worked well. I sat and watched the flames in the belly of the burner when the idea of making a burner in the shape of Darth Vader’s head popped into my head. I was hooked and off I went to work on my next stove." 

Incredibly, Dodson doesn't use templates, which means that each fire pit is truly one of a kind.

Ranging in price $360 to $1430, all of his designs are available on the company's website. Check out some of the most awe-inspiring pieces below:
