I will give you the information on the 5 best wood burning fire pits with decorative finishes. They will have cutout patterns or stylish designs. The three cutout types will be very similar in design. The two larger ones with cutouts will be heavier and more expensive.
Each will work well in most outdoor burn areas that are away from any combustible materials. You cannot use any of these fire pits on wooden or composite decks or close to the side of your home. For a compatible gas burning fire pit for these areas, see my post in the gas fire pit category here.
Now we will look at all of the information on each of these fire pits and see what looks and work well for your outdoor space.

Care of your fire pit
The two large fire pits have a patina finish that will last very well in outdoor weather conditions. The three smaller fire pits will have a matte black finish that will protect the finish in most weather conditions.
To further protect your fire pit, make sure that you do not leave ashes in the burn bowl, this will keep moisture next to your finish and will start early rust problems. Clean the fire bowl of your fire pit out after it cools for the best long lasting fire pit.
The other recommendation I make for any outdoor patio furniture items is to store them out of the weather or cover them with a quality tight fitting poly cover to keep them dry and out of the sun. The two things that will damage your fire pit the fastest is the wet weather or the hot sun, both will damage your finish and start the process of rust.
Plow and Hearth offers two fire pit covers, item 63721 or 56024.

My final thoughts on these fire pits
I like the Bear Camp one that the Bears are cooking marshmallows over a open flame. Any of these wood burning fire pits will do the job of burning wood, each will have a different look and style.
The three smaller ones can be taken almost anywhere with ease, they weigh only about 25 pounds, the others are quite heavy and will need to be left in place unless you are moving to another home.
