Introduction:

The variety of decorative custom copper covers for fire pits shown here have become a very popular item of our work in the last few years. They are an attractive way to help keep out falling debris and excessive rain water while not in use. You could just cover your fire pit with a simple canvas tarp, but without some sort of support framework over the hole it would just sag in the middle and puddle with water and debris, so these have been a good attractive solution that is pretty much maintenance free. Just requires some effort to lift it off out of the way and return it when you're done.

fire-pit cover w/vent cover

We have a pipe bender, so we can form a curved copper pole framework if you still want to cover your fire pit with just a tarp.

I do not have the tooling to make seamless domes, so we had been using a pre-formed 36" wide seamless hammered dome covers adapted from a portable fire pit bowl you will see in several photos below, but they are no longer available. They were often not large enough and are made with just a thin 16oz copper, so it would dent easily. The hammered look is preferred by many, so new dents are less noticeable. Logic would suggest; why use a life-time metal like copper if it may become dented or damaged before long. The doming effect does help to stiffen that thin sheet metal a bit, like with car fender panels. When we custom form a cover like this we use a thicker 24oz to 32oz copper for more strength and better wind resistance with greater weight, but more effort is required to place and displace the cover each time. A 60" wide cover like this can weigh over 50#. This would not be a struggle for 2 people, but one person may find it a chore to move.

I can make these in several styles, sizes, and shapes to fit your desired look and function. I am careful not to give my Clients the impression I am trying to up-sell them, so I try not to push additional feature our Client had not asked for, so please be very specific with details you want when ordering one of these covers through e-mail.

We have found some seamless domes to use for these covers that were made to be a small fire pit To do this we have to angle the outer rim down to drain and shed debris better. They we come with a steel ring inside the outer rim that we have to remove.  Then add a 1'2" thick copper pipe along the outer edge for strength and better handling. We then affix the handles and a drop ring you may want added to this order.

On the left you will see a larger sturdier smooth dome I recently found to use for these covers. It is 3" wider than the old covers I used at 39" wide. As you can see it has a taller clearance in the middle as well. It is made with a thicker sturdier copper. The old style cover on the right was just 8#, where this new cover is 13.2# with the steel ring removed. The weight shows how it is made with a thicker copper; being more dent resistant. They are just not pre-hammered with thousands of small dents like the cover on the right we used to offer. If you don't like the smooth look it is possible to have us beat this cover up as well for an added cost. The real reason the hammered copper look is used is just to hide any imperfections or new dent that a cover may suffer over the years in service.

If you need a cover that is wider than 40" we can form custom shapes that are not seamless, or make a tapered extension rim under these to extend out further past the dome (not recommended). Wider custom covers can be round, octagon, square, or rectangular with endoskeleton seams. 

Common Charges (w/o freight):Copper fire-pit cover

Round seamless domes prepped for use upside down (handles & freight not included):

  • $700 for a 40" wide seamless smooth dome w/small pipe rim added 16.6#

  • $20# for 20oz, 24oz, or 32oz copper (based on weight per square foot).

  • $20 sq' for hammering of the copper sheet metal for a rustic texture.

  • Fire pit cover brass handle$150 for any 18" wide smooth decorative seamless domed Derby hat style topper. I made a special purchase of these copper lids made for garden hose pots, which can add a fancy detail to these fire pit covers. They weigh just 3.2#. This can be used in lieu of a center handle for a cover that's not too large and heavy. These usually require a 1/2" pipe ring added to transition to the main cover.

  • $20# for drop ring to help keep this cover in place during wind storms w/o having to fasten it down; allowing for simple on and off movement. The cost can vary depending on the diameter and depth you need. It is best to add a small copper pipe along the bottom edge for durability.

  • Fire pit cover brass handle$20# for a copper pipe trim/rim for added strength and comfort to hide the sharp edges of the sheet metal. A ring can be formed in as little as a 1' diameter circle, up to a 6' 4" wide circle with a single seam using a 20' long pipe. These can be made using a 1/2", 3/4", or 1" pipe. The weight of a 10' type L pipe is 2.4# - 1/2", 4.2# - 3/4", 6.1# - 1". They sell a thinner type M copper pipe, but I work with the thicker type L pipe for added strength and dent resistance. Let me know if you want a thinner pipe used in stead for lighter weight.

    $30 to $50 each for simple knobs or D handles attached. Keep in mind most handles are made for indoors use and may not stand up well to outside exposure. The limited selection shown here has to do with the stock we have on hand, but we have the same access to thousands of different style as you do. You are welcome to order a set of handles you like and ship to us for attachment for just $25 each. Our primary aim is your long term satisfaction so don't be shy to be decisive with these order.

  • Copper fire pit cover w/brass handles$100 each for the deluxe PVD life-time coated brass handles installed.

A custom crate and freight is required if you do not happen to be local to the Portland, OR area:

  • around $10 to $15 sq' for our custom wood crate and packing material (less for larger crates).

  • $150 or so for 40" wide covers shipped through FedEx Ground

  • $250 to $500 for truck freight delivered to a residence w/liftgate service. I do not mark up the freight cost, so you are welcome to make your own shipping arrangements.

Strength:
Since most of the cost you pay for any custom work like this is labor and freight; logic would dictate why bother using a life-time metal like copper if it is thin to save cost; when it would be so flimsy and most likely become dented and haggard looking within less than a decade of normal use? Although, thicker copper would be heavier to lift each time, so that is an important factor as well. Weight is good for stability in a wind storm, but can make use challenging for just one person.

For covers with flat sides I can make a wood shell inside for support of a thinner copper, but that does not seem to make it any lighter or cost less. Example: I made a 49" wide flat cover with a thinner 20oz copper, so it needed 1/2" thick plywood underneath for support, but it still weighed over 42#. Thicker copper may not be impervious to dents, but it will be a good deal more durable, and the added weight makes it less prone to get blown off in a harsh wind storm.

I could make these covers using a thicker 48oz copper, but it would be 150% heavier, so it is not as practical and more expensive of course. It is tricky to find just the right balance between strength, weight, and cost for the best possible long term results, but these seem to be working out well so far. The only complaint I've gotten was how it did not sit flat on their irregular stone work. It just needs rotated to find the best fit or a slight tweak to make it sit right and not teeter. Of course without being able to be there at your place there's no way I could possibly make sure these will fit to your stone surround just right, so some minor adjustment may be needed.

Cone Shaped Covers:
Made in just a 20oz copper would still last 7 to 8 decades if handled responsibly each time, and not subjected to flying debris in a wind storm. Each bend helps add strength. A steeper angle also adds more strength. They may be more prone to denting with normal use, but this would be the most practical cost wise, as well as light weight for easier handling. Although, with the lighter weight it would be wise to have a drop ring made to fit down inside the fire pit to help keep them from getting blown off in a windstorm.

If you are OK with a cone shaped covers with a single soldered seam they would be water tight still, and we can make them in any custom size or angle to fit your needs. They can be made square, rectangular, octagon, or 16 bends for a more circular look.

If you happen to be local to the Portland, OR area for as little as $300 you can use a basic 36" wide copper cover w/o handles or drop ring. Here's a couple pics to give you and idea of what they could look like:

Fire pit cover w/brass handles

For better durability I can make these in a thicker copper and or add copper piping along the outer rim to add strength and better handling. In this style runs $20# + freight and handles.

Handles:
This fancy swirl style door handle you'll see on most of our covers runs $100 each installed, and have proven to be very popular with our Clients, since they do not look like ordinary door knob. They resemble handles commonly seen with fireplace tools made to dissipate heat well. This handle add about 1# each to copper covers. You may only need 1 handle or knob in the middle of a small cover, yet you may feel it look better with a pair of handles.

Fire pit cover brass handle

They can come with several different base plates styles.

There are several hundred different handle shapes and sizes you can opt for. The deluxe handle above comes with a premium life-time PVD metal coating that will not tarnish or scratch like a lacquered finish will and handles the UV rays of the Sun, but keep in mind most other handles are designed for indoor use, so they have just a lacquer finish that will not hold up as well exposed to the elements.

Simple cabinet handles or knobs shown below can be use in stead for just $30 to $50 each. Here is just a few examples to choose from shown below. You can click on this image to get a better full screen look. You are still welcome to get your own set of handles and ship them to us for installation for $25 each. Some Clients have us add an extra 'D' shaped handle just to run a cable lock through it to help secure their cover from theft.

Fire pit cover brass handle

We have a few other hinged handles as well to fold down; like 'm'.

Note: these handles do not have the better PVD coating.
Brass with a lacquer coating will peal and tarnish over time. Some of the darker antique handles and knobs have iron in them; making them prone to rust eventually.

Drop-Rings:
A retaining ring is a good simple way to help hold a cover in place in a wind storm, so it won't shift out of place, but would add to the weight as well as the cost, so I leave it to your discretion if this is needed for your situation. Most Clients seem to be quite opinionated on this detail; knowing their area better than I could.

Fire pit cover brass handleSize & Shape: If you do want this feature I will need to know exactly the size and shape of the hole it needs to slide down into. It is best to use a large sheet of paper or cardboard to outline this hole, then fold it up, and mail it to me, so we can make sure it will fit just right. If it were to be even a little too large or shaped wrong it would be pointless and not fit down into the hole. If it is an irregular shaped hole you may want to indicate the direction you want the handles to point, so you will always know how to hold it as you put it back on. This way it slides down into place each time w/o difficulty.

Depth: I would also need to know how far down into your pit you would like the drop ring to extend below the outer rim of the cover. Some gas fire-pits have a shallow depth. This should not need to be more than 3" below the outer rim, but I leave this to your discretion.

Photos: It also helps me to see some photos of your fire-pit, so I can better visualize this, and ask questions if needed for the best possible outcome.

Below are some examples of the covers we've made for Clients over the last few years. Their feedback has help greatly to refine this process and designs.

Hello David … the firepit cover arrived and we are thrilled with it! You and your team did an incredible job helping us to bring to life the cover in a way that serves its functional purpose, while not dominating the design of the firepit yet still looking gorgeous. I’m sure your reputation speaks for itself but if you ever need a reference both in terms of quality of work and integrity in business please send them my way.

All the best,

Light - (4/13)
Redondo Beach, California

This is a custom 39" wide solid copper stand and fire-pit cover for our client Jim Light. It has a 2.5" drop flange below the lower rim. The cover is 36.5" wide. The frame is 20.8# and the cover w/handle is 11.4#. Jim will use the top cover set over his gas fire pit when not in use to keep it clean. We tested the strength of the frame with 450# on it (2 men). I imagine it could easily handle over twice that much weight.

Hi David
The Fire Pit dome arrived as scheduled. Nice job on the shipping box. The box was easy to open, and more importantly, absolutely no damage. The dome has met our every expectation in looks, fit and functionality. We will look forward to how it patinas up over the years as we prefer that look. Here are a couple of installed shots. It was a pleasure working with CBD to make the dome a reality.

Once again thanks from the Young's

I order these 37" W copper fire pit bowls from a wholesale company called Good Directions. I have to hand hammer the flat bottom to this dome shape in the middle. Then add the handles and the bottom skirting w/outer 1/2" copper pipe to raise it up higher and wider for more clearance.

Cost: $1,426 delivered in a custom wood crate

This was just a simple 36" wide copper cover w/a solid brass handle in the center raised up to make sure it was away from the dome in caser it were to be hot. That handle was attached to a 6" long solid 3/4" brass rod. I do not do this style handle any more for obvious reasons. The dome had a 7" clearance in the middle.
