Warm up to cooling down

It could just be me but I feel like this year is just flying by. And before you know it, it will be cooling down and fall will be here.  One of my favorite things about fall is those bonfire nights with friend and family.  Get ready for the bonfire season with Rural King’s plethora of fire right options.

The most popular ones are the Culvert 36” Fire Ring 55106 and the Tarter 36” Fire Ring FR3

If you’re looking for a more decorative option there is the S&D International Harvester Fire Ring 99954 as well as the Homestead Tumbled Fire Ring Kit

If you’re not looking for a bonfire just a nice looking fire to give off some heat we have plenty of fire pits. Some fore example are:

The Bond 66030 Humboldt Steel Fire Pit with Lava Rock

Bond 6078 Ravenswood Tabletop firebowl fire pit

The weather cooling down isn’t so bad. All you really need is a nice fire with some great people and some good food and you will be set for those cool evenings.

Stacking Planters

A place for everything and everything in its place

At any given time, I have multiple projects I’m wanting to get accomplished. So many in fact that they were spilling over everywhere in my house and things inevitably get lost. However, the Plano Field Ammo Box has helped me immensely with keeping everything organized. I have a couple that I take to the range and it makes life a lot easier than digging around in the bottom of a bag. They’re lockable as well to keep little fingers out. They’re useful for so many more things than storing ammo though! I have one for bicycle/scooter tools, spare parts, and a lunch that I can strap to the rack for longer rides. I have a couple with job-specific tools such as brakes and oil changes for my car. I can keep my metalworking tools and supplies separate from those for woodworking and the handle makes it easy to move everything. They’re sturdy and a great size for lots of different things. At $4.98 a piece, they’re also inexpensive enough that you can buy a separate one for each need!
