This week we remove the mystery of building your own fire table using a DIY Drop-in Burner.
|Parts Needed||Tools Needed|
- Drop-in Burner
- Non-Whistle Flex Line
- 150 BTU Ball Valve w/ Key
- Tapered Fittings
- Fire Glass
- Jigsaw or Router
The first step is to make a template of the burner that will be used as a guide to make the correct size cut in the table top. To make the template take a piece of cardboard and push it over the burner hub burner side down. Trace an outline around the burner onto the cardboard. To finish the template cut out the outline.
Place the template in the exact location where the burner will mount on the table top. Trace an outline around the template onto the table. Using a jigsaw or router cut along the outline. **Disclaimer: Do NOT build a fire table out of wood. Wood was only used in this guide for instructional purposes**
Unscrew the chrome plate from the ball valve. Using the chrome plate housing trace an outline around the smaller diameter onto the side of the table. Use a jigsaw or router to cut out the hole. Place the chrome plate through the hole and screw it back onto the ball valve assembly.
Make all necessary connections using the Non-Whistle Flex Line and tapered fittings and drop-in the burner pan when completed. (Be sure to follow all State regulations and consult a license plumber in your area for proper gas connection procedures). Note the path of gas indicated on the side of the ball valve.
With everything connected the last thing to do is add the Fire Glass. The Fire Glass should sit about an inch above the burner tube. Open up the ball valve with the key and light up you new DIY Drop-in Burner Table.
