The fire pit below belongs to Mike DeVito in Northern California. When I saw his idea I was excited to help him create something new and wonderful. He took a very old mining cart in his front yard and we helped him convert it to a propane burning fire pit! Turned out pretty cool! Next he is getting a fire pit cover made to cover it from debris and who else knows what.
We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) with valves, thermocouple, pilot light and air mixer. The glass that was use is:
I think this is one really nice idea!
It is all supplied by this 20 lb propane tank
Here is the mining cart with the base plate installed with the burners
Here you see the controls, air mixer and thermocouple and pilot light lines under the base plate
You can use a larger (3/4", 1" lava) as a base under our 1/4" crushed lava as this will save you a few dollars.
Now we pour on the crushed lava
to keep the glass from sinking into the larger lava.
Splash a few colors
Have your spouse light it in case something should go wrong! (Just Kidding)
Again here are the first pictures we saw of the mining cart. Great Idea!
Mike, you did a great job!
