Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

      Really neat site. A few more ideas on how to finish ovens in there, too.

      Nice find!

        Seconded and "thirded." Great find. You, like I did, must have found the bond styles and iron use fascinating. Some of it seems to be what's called Flemish bond of the type seen in parts of the Hudson River Valley in New York.

          Interesting site. Belgian domain. English, French, with what, Walloon? Dutch? the primary language. Did you click through to the lists of existing and demolished ovens? There's hundreds of them. It's interesting that there are many more ovens in buildings than freestanding. I guess bakers would have wanted to work indoors in the low-country climate. Did you see the oven with the HUGE buttresses outside the building? I guess they didn't want that one to fall down.

          Assuming that all those ovens are basically un-insulated it's no wonder that they are endangered. It must take a forest to heat one of them up.
