Death Star Fire Pit

The construction may not look complete, but this Death Star fire pit it fully operational. It doesn’t have the ability to destroy a planet (which is insignificant next to the power of The Force anyway), but I’m sure it’ll roast the hell out of a marshmallow. The fire pit was constructed out of defective propane tank ends by an 84-year-old metalworker, who gave it to his grandkids as a Christmas present.

It's amazing to think that this man was already well into his forties when the first Star Wars film came out. He's watched multiple generations become obsessed with this sci-fi franchise, and instead of dismissing it as a bunch of 'hooey' (he would totally use that word), he's willing to nurture that love for the films, and is likely a fan himself. If not, he's just one cool grandpa.
