Here a few pictures on how Gary Westfall built his propane fire pit himself:
We can help anyone build propane fire pit or even natural gas.
Notice The hollowed brick paver? This was to conceal the Copreci valve.
There are several options on the pan, you can even use an aluminum plate under the last course of bricks which works as well.
The ring was elevated to be 2" below the surface of the glass, very important. Holes up on this propane burner.
Gary Westfall also wrote a nice document on building his fire pit, "CLICK HERE" to open his document.
The portable fire table/ pit below was built by Kris Day. This is a portable Propane Fire Pit and he installed Azurlite base glass. This is a fairly simple project that we can help you build by monitoring and supplying the correct parts. From the start here we go:
From start to finish, propane or natural gas burners with or without a pan, we can help you build your own.
The next fire pit below has one of our FPPK's installed. We didn't supply the star burner bur we did get it to burn correctly with a Ford Blue base glass. Then it was Topped with Clear and Blue Diamonds. We will explain as we move on.
Below you can see the gas shut off on the left and our FPPK box on the lower right.
Below you now have fire! It was a bit windy but you get the idea.
The next fire pit below was built and installed by Kevin Smith.
This is a propane fire pit and we sent the stainless steel burners and Copreci Valve. The burners are and were calibrated to the burner to insure a clean burn. There are so many companies out there who sell propane pans, burners, air mixers along with the glass and when you have any issues, they just seem to run away and leave you holding the bag. We will explain as we move forward.
Above you see the cinder block hollowed out. You don't need a pan, the block is the pan! Too many times we see this situation and the customer is told they need a pan, why? Ohhhh, because the dealer needs your money more than you do!
Below you see the stainless steel burners on a bed of crushed pea gravel
Below you can see the Copreci and air mixer mounted to a bracket on the end of the pit. Remember, the air mixer and Copreci have to be calibrated to the burner or it won't work! There is no magic bullet, it's pure and simple knowledge. Propane Burners have to be dealt with great care.
The glass that was installed was Ford Blue base glass.
Done, simple and nice!
This next fire pit was built by Tim and Sarah, they simply built this with stacker stones and a bit of ingenuity. The used a crushed lava base with Black Base glass topped with Black Reflective base glass. Then they used a Light Amber Topping to create the Fleur De Lis. This was done with a propane valve that we supplied. They used a wood burning fire bowl for the pit. The tank was accessible from the back of the fire pit.
Add the base crushed lava. Note we do not use the 3/4" size? Way to large for the glass as it will fall through. You can use the larger lava and then over it with the crushed lava to save some cash!
Below if you notice the Pilot Light and Thermo Couple just inside of the ring? This is a must if using propane, for safety.
And your done!
Steve Hinojos (S.B. County Sheriff) built two fire pits using propane. One of which was a Wine Barrel Fire Pit and the other a traditional (oopsies on this one!). We will explain as we move on.
We supplied the know how and all of the parts to make his Wine Barrel Fire Pit a success! great job Steve!
We also supplied Steve with the all of the propane parts to make his fire table work properly as well. It's when we got his pictures that we noticed the ROCKS! You can't burn ROCKS, they EXPLODE! This you can see in teh Famous "How Not To Do It" page. Initially he had no problems but once they took on moisture, sure enough he was back for some safe and sound glass!
All in all, great job Steve!
