The table is made out of steel (treated with black patina for color and clear matte for weather protection) and weather-treated redwood (with a cherry walnut stain and a coat of polyurethane to protect the surface from drink rings or spills). The steel is treated with a weather protective clear coat. The table runs off of an ordinary grill propane tank or natural gas (gas fixtures can be interchanged). Flame is adjustable by a key valve, pictures displayed are at an intermediate gas level. Protective screen has the words "Caution Hot" woven into the metal and is removable. Fire glass or Fire Crystal can replace the rock for best presentation. All gas seals meet NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) requirements for display in front of an audience.
