We provided a series of stainless steel burner rings for our clients unique fire bowls in beautiful Napa Valley.
Joe Ramirez contacted us with a few fire pit problems, which we helped him fix. When building a propane fire pit, keep in mind the following:
- Don't put your controls under the base plate, you want to make sure that if you ever need to service the unit you will be able to have access to it.
- The Air mixer needs to be located in its proper position so that base of the fire pit wont fill up with gas and create a bomb.
- Again air ventilation is critical when it comes to propane.
Here is what Joe had to say...
"Were all good, I spoke to Morgan very helpful, you got a great crew. Works like a champ. Thanks again."

These two fire pits come from our customer Betsy. Her first pit had a Bronze Base Glass, Cherry Red Topper and Ice Ice Ice Topper.
And this one has Starfire Base Glass and Copper Ruby Red Topper.
The Lavender Bistro in Palm Desert, CA contacted us to work on a large outdoor, natural gas fire pit. Below you can see the custom housing box for the 3 key valve ignition system that powered this large fire pit.
Here are a few photos of the 'Project-In-Progress' photos. Below in the pit, 1/4 Starfire Base Glass, Lillac Topper, Hyacinth topper, Purple Topper, Fuchsia Topper, Pink Topper, and Violet Topper.

This Fire Tables Was Made For the Marriott in Boise Idaho
A pair of custom fire pits for the Marriott. The tables were 60" diameter with a custom 24" tall stand. A brushed finish, with 8" edge was added along with a touch sensor to turn the lights on under the table.
The high heat concrete is applied and molded to shape. Then the 24" double ring and lava rock were added.

We replaced a broken hot spark ignition on the fire pit below. With our IPI (intermittent Pilot Ignition) electronic ignition system. The fire pit was 18" deep and 48" across. This is what was installed. We will show you from beginning to end.
We started to pour the crushed lava with our electronic ignition being raised to the surface by the lava rock.
We built a double box to protect the equipment in the fire pit as well. The ring is now installed.
We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!
As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals as our Toppers and Toppings. We don't use "Recycled" glass, ever!

The Perfect Fire Pit For Social Gatherings
Here is a how to build a basic fire pit for your deck/ back yard. This was built by Glenn Harvey of British Columbia. This first picture is the frame he had started with. Wrap it with wonder board or durock/ cement board. You can make one from metal studs, aluminum studs, etc. Anything non flammable.
Keeping British Columbia Warm
Below you can also wrap it with wire for better adhesion to the backer board. This fire pit was natural gas. We also manufacture the burners for propane. Well, we are the only ones who actually manufacture propane burners for your projects.
Below you can see the gas connection coming up from the deck. Glenn used a pan but he also could of used an aluminum/ stainless steel base plate as well.
The stacker stone is now being applied. As you can see below the trimming valve is installed on the side. You would be surprised on how many plumbers don't think of this little detail, a valve to turn it on or off. I have seen the valves installed inside of the pit or not even at all. You also need to be careful as to not have a gas line installed that is too small for the application. Now the stone and cap are done, great and simple job!
Below you an see the larger filler lava rock was installed. If a flat plate were to have been used you wouldn't need the larger filler lava rock base. Below our crushed lava was used to cover the larger lava rock to insure the glass does not fall through. This makes an even base. What ever shape you make the lava is the shape the glass will take.
Below we installed Water White Base Glass (32 lbs) for a 1 1/2" cover!
The stone on the side of the fire pit used was to match the stone on the house as well. Looks awesome!
Below is just the Water White before the colors were added.
The colors that were added are as follows:
Deep Blue Topper mixed in around the Azurlite Base Glass in the sky area.If you notice below the center of the sun, it changes when it get hot! This one of our chameleons that change when the glass gets hot. If you look real close at the Orange Topper (next to the suns center) as well, it turns a bright cinnamon red when it get hot also! All of our chameleons will be posted when we get a chance. Above is the fire burning and below the fire was just turned off. Glenn spent a few hours placing all of the glass to make this very cool scene. So don't just think you can just throw it on and it knows were to go. Very creative!
