Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit Review

Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit

Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit
After having an extremely long wet spring we have finally dug out our patio furniture and have started to set up our patio. Although we own a portable gas heater for the patio we decided that we would use our outdoor space more if we had a fire pit.

We live in the Pacific Northwest where when the sun goes down or behind a cloud it gets quite cool. By having areas on the patio that have extra heat sources we are able to use our outdoors space more.

Because we never buy anything without a great deal of research we went looking in the local patio furniture stores and the hardware stores that stock fire pits. Armed with this information we turned to our favorite online site Amazon.

After looking through the selection of fire pits we settled on the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit. We liked the idea that this was a two in one product. Not only does this Strathwood product have a fire pit it also has a very useable table. The lovely copper bowl is wrapped in an elegant lightweight rust resistant aluminum table.

Benefits of the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit

For our needs we wanted to have a fire pit that we could use if we were having a drink and some food either with friends or with family. The design of the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit combines the need for a casual table that would support glasses and plates while giving a nice heat.

The copper bowl has a black metal grate at the bottom that keeps the flame and sparks in check. The mesh dome top that covers the bowl prevents sparks from flying. We have found that our local hardware stores have fire logs that are made specifically for fire pits and fit perfectly into this bowl.

The table has a beautiful ornamental scrolling vine cut into the high quality cast aluminum. The open spaces allow for the rain that we get to be easily drained. One small negative that other reviewers have mentioned is the pooling of water in the copper bowl. Drilling a small hole in the bottom of it can easily solve this.

There is enough room around the fire pit for dinner size plates to sit however this Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table allows the fire pit to be covered when not in use. We like this feature on two counts. The first is that we often have our young grandchildren with us and we can use the table without any fire. In this case it is safer and also the table is at a nice height for them. The second reason that we like the idea of it just being a table at times is that it extends the available space that we have for a full fledge dinner.

Although the table is relatively heavy – 44 pounds, it is light enough to be moved. This allows us to move it either in or out of the sun or wind.

The Elegance of the Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit

Part of the Strathwood’s St Thomas ensemble, this table/fir pit is made of the highest of quality cast aluminum. It is dark brown with bronze highlights and silver flecks. It has been sand casted then covered in a powder coat finish. The design is a scrolling vine that makes it look like a much more expensive item.

The surface of the table is smooth so plates and glasses sit without wobbling. The feet are adjustable and can be set on uneven patio stones.

When the copper bowl is covered the table looks like an elegant wrought iron table. Since it made from cast aluminum it is much lighter than the iron and it is rust resistant. As we have a lot of rain in the Pacific Northwest it is important to use that our outdoor furniture be rust resistant.

What Is In the Box?

This table is 44 pounds but in an effort to keep the table and legs from scratching it is heavily packed and the shipping weight is 80 pounds. When delivered it is a good idea to have it placed near where you want it. That way you won’t have to wrestle with the heavy box.

When the box is unpacked you will find:

Table – 42 inches round by 221/2 inches high
Fire pit bowl – 22 inches by 7 inches
Black Metal Grate
Mesh Dome
Cover for fire pit bowl
Legs – 4
Screws – 17

Assembly

Assembly is quite easy. Most of the time is spent undoing the extensive packaging. It is suggested that just three legs be attached before attaching the supporting ring. Don’t tighten the screws until all the legs are in place.
Each leg has an adjustable foot so it can be set for uneven patio stones. The lovely copper bowl sits in the middle and the black grate fits in the bottom of the bowl.

If your table is going to be out in the rain it is probably a good idea to drill a small hole in the bottom of the copper bowl. This will allow the rainwater to drain.

Happy Customers

The Strathwood St. Thomas Cast-Aluminum Round Table with Fire Pit is an Amazon Exclusive Product. It has a rating of 4.25

Owners have this to say:

We wanted a fire pit that would provide a place to set drinks and plates and work as a table other times. This fits the bill perfectly.

Nice quality, assembled quickly and looks great on our deck. Was missing the screw to attach the knob to the cover, which required a trip to Home Depot – but other than that, we’re completely satisfied.

Love it! Easy to put together. Doesn’t wobble, looks amazing.
I looked forever for the right one..wanted one to be able to put stuff on & it acts as a great ‘coffee’ table under the pergolla when not having a fire.
Drilled a hole in the copper bottom so water can drip out.
I did buy a cover for it which I love because it keeps it clean, but don’t think you’d need to.
