What type of stone is best for the "cap" stone around fire pit?

- Wanted to use flagstone, but was told that was not a good choice?

    It is smooth saw cut native Texas limestone, probably 2-1/2" to 3" thick with chopped rough edges.

    The Buechel Stone comments above are all good ones to consider and all applicable in the design decision process.

    This particular cap was done in a flagstone product (which I consider to be a thin cut veneer stone). This works OK as long as it has a good backing (CMU, concrete, etc.). I'm not really a fan of it visually as a capstone only because I think it is too thin if it is projected over the side of the pit. I like a thicker capstone visually. I think a flagstone capstone works better if it is laid flush with the outside wall of the pit. A thicker capstone looks better to me when projected beyond the side 1/2"+.

What is the height of the fire pit?

    The pit was designed by Bebee Gray and David Bost of Bost Landscapes in Round Rock. I don't think he is still in business. The adjacent chair seat height are probably 16" +/- in height so it appears that the pit height is about the same. Hope that helpsl
