The CaliCampFire is built to last starting from the bottom up. The .250" replaceable steel feet fold down for table top height as well as transport/Storage The pivot points are powder coated .120" cold rolled steel. Riveted to the main body to allow for replacements if damaged. The main body is constructed from 16 gauge cold rolled steel with a 2"x3" laser cut burner support tube in the center adding strength and keeping the weight down 16lbs in total. The main body is Powder coated black with a 600F degree stable powder for a long lasting finish. The fire pit/burner is designed to move heat up and at you. So the lower section doesn't get hot if the flame is left tame. You can run this fire right on the picnic table.
The internal gusseting (burner tube) uses a 3x2x.120" wall laser cut tube to locate the brass burner and stiffen up the main body of the pit.

Deflector Media Tray:
The Deflector Media Tray is constructed out of 14 gauge 304 2B finish stainless steel. Left raw to allow for bluing (color changing with heat) it will get a patina over time of gold and blue from the heating and cooling of using the fire pit. While the camp fire can run with no media and still be great. To get the most out of your gas fire you will want to add a fire media to help defuse the flames as well as providing more radiant heat to the people sitting around the fire. A small 10lb bag of lava rock works well filling the deflector plate. Depending on the location chunks of Lava rock can be found at camp for setting up the pit. Just note not all rocks play well with fire, some can explode under direct heat. Know the rocks you are putting to flame Lava rock is a safe bet.
The .250" thick 304 Stanless steel legs lock closed and open, pivoting on riveted .120" cold rolled hinges.
