Juan utilized one of our 18" RV Fire Pits with a 36" Black hose (with regulator), for his propane fire table. And even though the RV fire pit is a square shape, the burner used is circular; making it acceptable to use in Juan's circular fire area opening.
Juan Gonzalez Juan Gonzalez

The table was constructed out of Cypress wood, topped with Mosaic slate tile.

And the FireGlass used was 1/4" Solex Bas eGlass, 1/4" Azurlite Base Glass with a filler base of Pea Gravel.

Here is what Tony had to say:
"Attached are some photos if the fire table I built with your help.  It is made of cypress wood and topped with Mosaic slate tile top I made. The heating unit is one of your portable RV untits!"

These are some great photos of a home-made Propane fire pit.   What's unusual about this propane pit is that instead of a tank the propane feed is hard lined in.  Our client Brian Jensen was rather handy so he built his own metal frame and we provided the stainless steel burner ring, propane system, control valve and Azurlite Base Glass.

The fire pit below has a Azurlite Base Glass with Aquamarine Blue Topper, Hyacinth TopperCitrine Topper and Copper Ruby Red Topper. This is a propane fire pit in Texas. Our dealer installed this glass and explained to the customer to eliminate the soot from the propane we had to lean the mixture with air. The customer asked the burner manufacture to come out and inspect the fire pit. The manufacture told the customer the glass was defective and this was causing the soot. The manufacture didn't even know how to get a clean burn on their own product! Needless to say the fire pit is still producing clouds of soot and the customer now knows the manufacture didn't even have a clue. The smell in propane is an added oil to the liquid propane so it can be identified. The oil will still burn off as the fuel is used but we lean the fuel by introducing 6 parts of air to the fuel to virtually eliminate the soot from the fire. Below are before and after pictures of the propane fire pit.

As you can see below the fire pit was creating soot long before we even started. The glass had nothing to do with burner as the burner was in the middle of the glass. The manufactures of most of these propane fire pit and fireplace burners don't even have a clue on what they are doing so please be careful. In this case the manufacture didn't know how to get a clean burn so there fore he said it can't be done! You be the judge, what looks better?

The next few pictures are from New York by Jai Crandall for Tom Morgan. We can hep transform an eye soar to a place of enjoyment. Just watch!

November 10, 2009
Hello Ed, my name is Jai Crandall and I live in central NY.  I have a good friend (Tom Morgan) that has a patio that he generally uses wood to throw some heat for his quests when he entertains.  Unfortunately, as I'm sure you know, the smoke can really get to you after a while. This is a very high end home and he entertains for some very important people.  He would like to eliminate the wood a replace them with some propane inserts. It doesn't have to look like a fireplace, but most importantly, it needs to throw some intense heat.
    Pictures 1,2 and 3 are the front views of the fire pits and as you will notice they are not square ( each picture is labeled with the dimensions), they don't need to stay like they are, so if you want to make them square you can. Just go by the front measurement. Hopefully you can design something that will fit there needs.
    I am sure that they are going to want electric ignition, and you can try to place the control valves in the front. Also, with the good New York weather, you want want to have covers for each unit.        
    Thank You so much for your time and I look forward to working with you to complete this project.
Jai Crandall

 Now here are the finished pictures on the property. Very nice!
Hey Ed,  Here are some pictures of the burners that I installed. They look great and they are very happy with their performance. Also, I believe that I may have a few more people interested in something similar to what I did for Tom Morgan.  Have a great forth weekend and I will talk to you soon.

This is a happy ending!

Jai came up with the Stainless Steel hollow base design and we went to work.  

This is a happy ending!

Our propane burners were set to 100,000 btu's each for maximum heat. The glass that we used was Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass.

The next fire pit is from Sandee Visintin and the glass that was used was, V Blue Base GlassV Blue Reflective Base Glass, Aquamarine Blue Topper, Turquoise Blue Topper.  In a stainless steel octagonal fire pit at the beach. If you take note a 1/2" piece of glass was placed on top of the fire pit for day time use.

Here is what Sandee and Frank had to say:
Hi Ed,

We love our fire pit, and so does everyone else who sees it.  Your rock is gorgeous…

We keep a glass octagonal table top on it when not in use; the rock is always visible, even when used as simply a coffee table.

Thanks for your beautiful product and great service!!

Sandee and Frank Visintin

The fire pit below has Azurlite Base Glass FireGlass/ Fire Glass installed. This fire pit was to have an electronic ignition but the pool builder forgot to wire it, oops! We then installed a battery operated IPI system and we will explain as we move on. The first issue was we were told the pit was 8" deep, it was only 6" deep! That will explain why the glass is mounded so high. they put a board on top of the fire pit and measured it to the top not the bottom.

On the bottom front left of the pictures you can see the blue battery compartment.  This will be just slightly covered with glass but easy to find come the time to replace the batteries. First layer of glass going on.  Below you can see that the ignition is just above the surface and the battery box is now gone!
We had to add more glass, again because of the 6"/ 8" bad measuring.

Below we did a Paparazzi photo shoot! This home took 2 years to build! The gates below had Sea Glass laminated to the glass panels.   If you take notice to the outside walls, the entire house was covered in marble! Crown moldings included!

This unique fire pit and FireGlass design was sent to us from our customer Edward Steinfeldt, who used a 24" Stainless Steel Double burner, 1/4" Clear Base glass, 3/16" Gray Light Base Glass with several various Toppers.


We can build these fountains for you to install yourself or we can aid you in building your own. We can help you design and or build your fire and water feature. Finished and evening pictures still to come!

The next fire pit below has one of our FPPK's installed. We didn't supply the star burner burner we did get it to burn correctly with a Ford Blue Base Glass. Then it was Topped with Clear Diamonds 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.

The next propane fire pit below was built and installed by Kevin Smith.  He used an outdoor stainless steel burner that was calibrated to insure a clean burn.

Beware of companies out there who sell propane burners, but no nothing about how to safely and cleanly burn glass.   Because when you have any issues, and you will have issues, you'll find that they just seem to never call you back.

Below you see the stainless steel burners on a bed of crushed pea gravel inside a hollow cinder block; which serves as a pan for the propane burner.

Kevin Smith 9 Kevin Smith 4

Below you can see the Copreci and air mixer mounted to a bracket on the end of the pit. Remember, the Propane air mixer  needs a great deal of care.

The glass that was installed was Ford Blue Base Glass.

Done, simple and nice!

The fire pit below is a propane fire pit. Notice that there is no soot! If you do it right, then it is done right! We are very proud of this fact. The base glass is a Starfire Base Glass topped with a Copper Blue Topper.   On the picture below you can see the Propane pilot cover/ blow out box at the bottom of the picture. When I received these pictures I didn't understand the dark chunks???? The customer was being creative and dropped in a few chunks of lava.

This particular Topper is a Copper Blue Topper, meaning we use copper and chrome to manufacture the glass. What this means is that when the glass gets hot, it turns green (because of the copper) and when it cools it returns to blue (because of the chrome). We actually have almost 30 colors which change colors. We hope to introduce these chameleons in the near future. But for now they are just hiding amongst the other colors.

The fire pit below was designed by Tim Warden of Orange County, California. We helped finish the design/ build of this fire pit.

We will explain as we go forward:

Start with a cantilever design off of the deck overhanging the hill side.

Orange County Fire Pit 1 Orange County Fire Pit 2

Close up of the control valves.  Two valves to control two burners. Don't expect to push gas into a massive burner then hope it goes where you want it to??? This helps equalize the pressure to each burner.  Below the plumbing is now finished.  Test burn

We used two 50" "T" burners in #304 Stainless Steel.  Copper cladding was added to the top portion and wrapped in water proofing material. Durock (cement board) was added the the lower portion for an application of smooth stucco.

Ford Blue Base Glass was added with Ford Blue Reflective Base Glass.   Starting to look nice! Real Nice! No that's not Marijuana in the back ground!  The 1/2" glass panels get installed with stand off clips on the back side so you don't see the installation.

The fire pit below was designed and built by Tamara Lyons and her wonderful family! Junior help most. The glass that was used is:

Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass,

E.D. Diamonds, Red and Orange,

Amber Diamonds,

Orange R140 Topper, this particular color is one of our chameleons. It turns a bright cherry red when heated and cools back to orange when cooled!

The fire pit had three sets of burners. One in the center and one on each outer edge. This way you can control how large, how much and where you can have fire when you want it.

Tamara Lyons 4 Tamara Lyons 5

This is how it started.  Pea gravel base.  Measure once, cut twice.

Ohhh, what color?? There are sooo many. What to do?

Tamara Lyons 3

So we sent a make up of what colors they liked. We can do this for you as well. Just tell us what colors you want and we will mix a batch and send you the pictures!

You should of seen the rest of the back yard! Who needs a house! I would live in the back.

The next fire pit was created by Mike. He used a metal flower pot/ planting tub and just connected it to his gas line. He installed
Clear Base Glass and Gold Bas Glass on top.   You can see the logs just outside of the pan on the left, yuk! I personally would of installed a ring burner, but that is just me! But you have to admit, it is a good idea!
