Mini Volkswagen Hippie Van Wood-Burning Grill Makes Outdoor Grilling So Cute

I'm not going to lie, barbecues are a little intimidating. Am I the only one who thinks something terrible is going to happen when you try to light it? This is why little grills are here to save summer grilling.

They're a little more approachable for those of us who irrationally fear bigger barbecues, but need to satisfy our summer grilling cravings. And, with one in the shape of a Volkswagen hippie van, why would we need anything else?

Danny Lyons is a metal fabricator who makes a ton of interesting wood-burning grills, fire pits, and furniture out of recycled materials.

The grills are sandblasted and painted with high temperature paint that's protected up to 1,202 degrees Fahrenheit!

No detail is missed. The wood-burning grill is complete with the iconic VW hood ornament, branded wheels, little side-view mirrors, and a little rack on top for grilling.

While you can load the front window with wood to light, the side windows are covered with a metal grate for added protection and safety.

You can also use it as a backyard campfire pit to enjoy all night long.
