My gut tells me the insert will never get hot enough to burn the table. Heat rises and gas fire pit flames are generally near the center. No doubt the insert is stainless and insulated. If you want to be super extra careful then make sure there is an air space between the insert and wood. There is such a thing as long term, low temperature, ‘charring’ (for lack of a better word) that can lead to spontaneous combustion but if this is an outdoor piece, rain and sun will tear up that pine long before it burns up.

The Flame Stop stuff is interesting, I didn’t know it existed, but it looks like you already have a finish.
