store...it greatly resembles the "portable fireplaces" I frequently see
in catalogues that carry outdoor stuff. Usually they are round, with
three feet and appear to stand about 8 inches or so off of the ground.
I have seen antique Japanese "hibachis"...these were made of wood,
usually elm or something similar, and had a firebox that was lined with
some kind of sheet metal, often copper. The firebox was rectangular,
and took up a little more than 3/4 of the top surface of the box. There
was a drawer in the bottom of the box on the end that didn't have the
firebox in it. Not sure if this is what you're talking about or if the
first item I described would work. If you're handy at woodworking this
second one shouldn't be that hard to build...there's no rule that says
you have to have the drawer part. This is a picture of a more elaborate
version of the one I saw:
This one is a simpler one...just a box with a sheet metal liner...
Hope this helps....
