found what we were looking for!!!!

and this is the table with the hole in the center!!

it’s called an “irori”

in the old days, houses were built with a fire pit in the main room

for cooking and heat…

now we have one in our garage!!!

Irori table

closed up, it can be used like a regular table…

the wood is really pretty and it’s nice and sturdy.

then, if we want to cook, we can open it up, and get a charcoal fire going..

ready for action!!

I have filled up the metal box with a very fine ash

then we place the charcoal on that and light it up!!

we haven’t used it yet, maybe this weekend.

    Wow. Now that’s a fancy ‘fire pit’. How will the smaller side be used?
