How to Build Your Gas or Propane Fire Table
Before you get started, select a desirable and safe location for your firepit away from buildings, tree branches, and/or a wooden gazebo or pergola, and then proceed with the following steps.
Clean granite pieces with water and a nylon brush, if necessary.
Lay the first row of pieces around a gas feed and away from buildings, tree branches, and/or a wooden gazebo or pergola. Ensure to install this row on a level surface.
Dry-stack or adhere the remaining granite pieces by staggering the joints.
For the second row, replace two full granite pieces with the half-sized ones to create ventilation gaps on opposite sides of the fire table.
Cut and secure wire mesh to the inside wall of these gaps so rodents don’t make your fire table home.
Check for vertical plumb. If leveling is needed, apply a teaspoon of sand with exterior grade silicone, PL 620 Granite/Marble, or PL Premium Constructive Adhesive between rows.
Determine the control panel location, preferably selecting the least visible side of the fire table.
Omit the granite pieces by using those numbered to create space for the control panel. Drill four holes into the exterior granite base in order to screw and, adhere, if necessary, the cover plate.
Attach the sparker and control valve to the plate. Ask a certified Gas Technician to connect the flex hose to the valve as per the gas burner instructions.
Ensure the assembled base is level and plumb. Have two people lift the solid granite top into place. Dry-stack or add adhesive to secure the top to the base.
Ask a certified Gas Technician to connect the burner pan to the supply line. Add glass beads or lava rocks.
