    Stonebriar wanted a cage for his Bandera's firebox. Here's what I made out of some scraps under my welding bench. The box is constructed of 1/8" smooth expanded metal and 3/4" angle iron. Dimensions of the cage is 15" x 11" x 8" high. The poker is a couple pieces of 3/8" rebar and a 1" dowel drilled out for a handle.

    Just the cage:

    The bottom side lets air get under the fire if it's used on a flat surface.
