Just finished mine but haven't stained or sealed it yet. Made from cedar and has 2 of the Bayou Classic 16 inch burners.

If this question is already answered, my apologies but I didn't see it anywhere. I see a lot of these wooden rigs with propane burners sitting on them and no scorching of the wood. Is there no danger of setting it on fire when you are using propane burners on a wooden stand?

It takes quite a bit of heat to get wood to burning temps. Over 600F, if I recall correctly.

That said, some simple precautions can be taken. On my brew stand, I have some 1/2" concrete backer board sheets where my propane burners stand. These sheets are normally used for construction where ceramic tiles will be used. The boards are pretty cheap and are readily available at hardware stores.

Other people take some sheet metal and bend them around the pieces of wood that are close to the sources of heat. That will work fine to deflect the heat.

I have a 2mm-thick aluminum heat shield (bent into a 20" square, and 6" tall)bolted 1.5 inches away from the wood that wraps around each of the two Hurricane burners mounted in my stand. The wood right behind the heat shield doesn't even get warm. Remember, heat rises - it really doesn't want to go laterally unless it has some serious pressure behind it, and our propane burners don't generate that kind of pressure.

First post on here. Been lurking for quite a while. Here is my wood brew sculpture in progress. It is going to be a RIMS system, and I have yet to install the flashing around the burners, pumps, etc.

I have about an inch of space between the outside of my burner and the wood. Even with a 16 gallon flat bottom pot on the burner, the wood doesn't get above warm. I don't crank the burner to the extreme though.

Note the scorching on the wood and the high tech ceramic floor tile countermeasure.
