BGE Chiminea Stand

just picked up a NIB BGE Chiminea but it was missing the original base. I know a lot of people use LBGE nest and I probably will also. But I would like to have a base also so if anyone might have one I am interested or if someone could give me the exact specs I will build one.

    Sweet. Pretty sure the one I have is on a medium stand, which does well, with a spacer. Would love to find an original stand myself, just for originality. As others said, nice score.

  • Any luck on finding a base? I wouldn’t mind having one of shorter low profile ones as well.  Hoping this was an easy find. Lol

  • No luck finding a base yet. Is there anyone who has one that could give me the specs so I could make one.

    There is really not much to the stand.
    You should be able to spec it from a photo and your chiminea.
    Just give the ring some wiggle room for ceramic expansion.
    Would also help to include your location. Might be a local who does not answer because he does not want to mess with shipping.
    But it should be an easy build.

  • Anyone else have or seen someone with a tall version of the stand? When I got mine the original owners said that’s how they got it from the mothership.

    Could have been a one of a kind or very limited run. But I would not want to have a raise one.
    But anyone looking might want to check pot stands.

    I agree. I have my Chiminea in a medium nest. I worry about the dogs knocking it over and destroying it.

    If you can find one I've seen them go for $250-$800. I got mine in the $200's.
