Very nice.

First sorry to take so long to respond. 1st Its not for cooking if that's what your asking. But once the lava rock gets hot after a few minutes. It puts off a lot of heat. So its a functional fire pit. What I thought was cool is how quite it is.

Really neat idea. How did you determine the size and number of holes in the gas tubes?

Just seen your question. I used self taping zip screws as drill bits because I didn't want to dull my drill bits. And that is how I pick how big the holes were going to be. I just layed out some holes drilled them then added some more till I got the amount of fire I was looking for. I figured worst case I would half to weld the holes shut and start over.

The coolest thing is once you cover it with lava rock it's a completely different looking flame. Placing the rock on the holes changes the flame. After a short time the rock cranks out the heat when standing next to it
