Home Made Lipo Safe

Has anyone made a home made lipo safe for charging and storage?

I'm going to need a fairly large one, say on the order of 100 cells. (It's for an electric vehicle) I think one would come in handy for charging and testing when the cells were out of their battery box. A 100 cell fire would really put a damper on things.

I guess the other option would be to just line the battery box with something fireproof.

Cinder Blocks make a good LiPo safe.
But 100 packs is a lot.

You can get 3x5 sheets of HardieBacker cement board at Home Depot. It might work well for your application.
