One possible safety tip... Place some screened vent holes (1/2 low, 1/2 high) in your cabinet.

Is COPPER an approved gas pipe for your gas ? Here in the USA, copper and natural gas have a bad reaction with each other. Please check to see that copper is OK for your gas that you use, and that you have the "right' kind, soft copper or hard copper.
Important Note About Underground Piping Materials - Allowable materials used for underground piping/tubing vary from state to state. The photos here depict copper tubing installed underground in a state where copper tubing is approved for underground yard line installations. Copper tubing is not an approved underground piping material in some states. Consult a licensed propane company in your state for more information about approved underground gas piping and yard line requirements.
The chemical formula for methanethiol is CH3SH; it is classified as a thiol.
The United States material safety data sheet (MSDS) lists methanethiol as a colorless, flammable gas with an extremely strong and repulsive smell. At very high concentrations it is highly toxic and affects the central nervous system. Its penetrating odor provides warning at dangerous concentrations. An odor threshold of 0.002 ppm has been reported. The United States OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit is listed as 10 ppm.
Mercaptans are less corrosive and less toxic than similar sulfur compounds found naturally in rotten eggs, onions, garlic, skunks, and, of course, bad breath. In other words, forms of mercaptan can be found in things that smell.
