The next table was built for a customer in La Jolla California. The table was 30" x 60" with a 24" x 54" fire pit area. They are going to make their own granite top to overlay.
All metal construction and their granite cut and installed.
The next fireplace installation was by Vito Sanfilippo. He installed a propane
pan and topped it with:
Here we go:
YUK, no paint...
Paint makes a world of difference.
Pan and glass installed
and if Vito wants a big fire, Vito gets a big fire!
and his wife said, no I want a small fire, guess who won?
The next Water Over Fire Feature
can be made in any configuration, size or shape. We can install it in a table or leave it as a stand alone feature. What ever you like. This particular bowl is a spun aluminum 30" bowl with a 26" water ring and about 100 lbs of Multi Mix base glass
. We added a few of our Terra Cotta Fire Balls
in the center.
This next Vortex project belongs to Alfie Petit in Palm Springs, California.
Alfie designed and had the seating area built to accommodate the Vortex. Then we installed a 42" centerless stainless steel ring which made a fire pit all around the Vortex. Those pictures will be posted as soon as Alfie sends them!!!!!
We will explain as we move forward
Now we wait for Alfie to send evening pictures with the outer ring burning around the Vortex!!!
The next fireplace is a self installation by Harminder in West Covina, Californa. He installed Starfire base glass
after he installed the 3 Sterling Silver
The only mistake that was made is that the glass should of been higher to cover the gas line coming in on the right side. He should of added more of a sand base, brought the sand and glass out of the fireplace for a more refined look. That is unless you like pipes!
This next fireplace was installed by Sueun. She installed the Sterling Silver
back panels and then placed a layer of sand
. Then she installed Starfire
over the sand. Sueun could not decide on which color, she she added almost all!!!!! She added;
, If she wanted color, then she got it. I think it turned out very colorful.
Texas Long Horn Fire Pit LOGO!
Ed, Rebecca, Morgan and crew at Moderustic:
Finally completed my project for the Texas Longhorn Alum in my RV Park. Actual time was only approx 80 hours but did not work on it full time.
Had my local welding fabricator build the base out of ¼” square tube for the circles and 1” square tube for the legs and attached some decorative feet on it. Also attached some L brackets at the top to install the granite top with.
Fabricator also built a 28” diameter by 4” deep pan out of 16ga steel. Later we decided to add a ¾” lip around the top edge.
We drilled holes in it to install some retractable handles for easier installation / maintenance. Drilled holes for the pilot assemble to pass through the pan and for the burner assembly to attach.
We had another 28.5” diameter 16ga steel circle cut out to create a lid for the pan to prevent rain/debris from disturbing the Glassel bed.
Used the longhorn cookie cutter cut out to make a 16ga steel flat longhorn cutout to affix atop of the lid
Had the pan and lid sandblasted and powder coated black to match the base. Had the longhorn powder coated candy copper along with a handle to match.
Cutout a ¾” plywood base to use to attach the granite to. Installed Tee Nuts into the plywood so that we could screw the plywood base onto the base of the table later.
Purchased and installed some 110v LED low profile puck lights and affixed to the underside of the plywood to create indirect lighting of the table, routed channels for the cabling to follow and used silicone to keep in place
Had my local granite company cut a ¾” thick 52” diameter circle with a 28” opening in the center to accommodate the pan.
Attached the granite to the plywood base using silicone.
Installed Cement Board onto the inside of the table base as a bed for the stone tiles.
Installed the Lowes Special Order Solistone 12” x 12” Stone Tiles around the table.
Created a bracket inside the table base to hang the AFVK-SP-MH/L and extended the wiring on the battery box to allow for installation underneath the granite top outside the table base to be able to change batteries later.
All the parts are complete so time for the final install
1. Place base in location, propane line already in place as well as 110v electric with X10 remote socket for LED lights.
2. Install plywood / granite / LED lights onto table base and screw into Tee Nuts
3. Install Pan on top of granite leaving access into the table to complete connections.
a. Disconnect Pilot assembly from AF-4000 MOD and run gas line, ignitor and sensor through hole in pan inside the table
b. Reconnect Pilot assembly back to AF-4000 MOD ( Be sure to use the correct connections or things will not work J )
c. Attach the battery pack to the underside of the granite base in the routed channel to allow the wiring to move in / out for ease of use.
d. Attach the pilot tube to the AFVK-SP-MH/L module.
e. Install the burner inside the pan and attach the Gas Outlet connection to the burner.
f. Attach the Gas Inlet connection to the gas supply line which has a cutoff on it.
g. Test the remote lighting and check all fittings with soapy water for leaks.
4. Once everything checked out, install the pan inside the opening.
5. Install a layer of lava rock under the double burner to lift if from the bottom about 1”
6. Install ¼” Starfire Glassel on top of lava and covering the burner while leaving the pilot assembly exposed to be able to function.
7. Tested the remote again to verify operation
8. Install the Longhorn cookie cutter and fill with Pimento Red Glassel.
9. Install cover

and now for the construction and pictures...
Jim Cogan Created this next fireplace using a Bronze Rust Copper base.
He installed a Ribbon Burner
opposed to a regular double burner. He had us make a 1/2" piece of Starfire as a front shield to contain the glass and it served as a "draft offset" to keep the Ribbon Burner
traveling straight up. Here are the before and after pictures:
The next pan was built to the customers specs (round with 3" lip) and wrinkle finish powder coated.
Propane as well.
Note the thermo couple, pilot light and Copreci valve. We calibrate every burner to burn clean.
The next fire table was built by Brian Johnson of Omaha Nebraska, very nice! We supplied the components and Brian did the hard part, the table.
We don't have the construction pictures but we do have the table finished. Add Bronze Base glass
and to pit with 1 lb of Ice
, you are done.
The blue is actually food coloring.
The next fire and water feature is one of our newer designs. The base bowl is a 24" spun aluminum bowl and the fire bowl is a 16" spun aluminum bowl. We will show you how it is made and tested.
The next fire pits were designed and built for the Marriott (Islandia previously) in Mission Bay California.
We started with several cardboard mock up tables for the hotel to approve.
We will explain as we move forward.
The hotel decided on the granite and we cut the granite with water jet and polished the edges.
These were installed on the private patios of the hotel suites.
Valves and location are important as well.
They ended up using a thermo couple and pilot light system with a battery operated igniter.
The next pan is a stainless steel pan we manufactures for our customer in Hawaii. The system that was install was a ventless burner
to burn propane
with our glass. We will explain as we go forward.
On the front of the pan we we bend an open back hemmed stainless steel curtain to conceal the controls but it is still easy access.
This is the ODS (Oxygen Depletion Sensor) it speaks for its self.
Here we are burning propane with a Starfire Base glass
, please note what a clean burn! We do it right.
All of our pans are built for each application and fireplace.
The next fire pit was built for Chuck Krallman in the Bahamas. The challenge was 15 knots per hour trade winds and propane
. Not a problem. We mock up all of our projects to insure that they work properly. I will explain as we move on.
We first start testing the venting and use cardboard or plywood only later to be replaces with 1/2" glass panels.
Proper venting and maintaining an upward draft is very important.
Hopefully Chuck will send us the finished and installed pictures of the feature installed in his table.
This is our trailer as of August 2011
We keep modifying and adding to the display.
Our latest addition is the Fogger System by www.Fogco.com.
We will explain as we move forward:
We are just finishing setting up at Palm Springs.This is our 5th year there! Every Thursday evening.
As the evening approaches the fires get larger and more spectacular.
We carry 150 gallons of water for the Fogco System in the back of the truck.
We can build any size, shape or configuration of burner that you may want. The next "S" burner was made to a template from #304 stainless steel pipe. This particular burner was made for a propane fire pit. But it also can be used for natural gas as well.
We were providing Toppers
for the Marriott and we were asked to show how much coverage 2 lbs was. So we laid out 30" x 70" area and spread out 2 lbs of each of the colors they wanted to add the top to see if in fact it was enough color.
