We just finished our patio paver phase and the crew left behind the crates from all of the stone. We literally have about a cord worth of pallet/crate wood that makes fantastic firepit fodder! See my build thread in the Under Construction section "New Gunite in Westchester NY".
Here's two shots from the inaugural fire.
PS- it was raining, but nothing a little gasoline encouragement could not overcome. That's why the travertine is wet and reflects the flames- it makes the photo in my opinion.
