Free Firewood in Tampa, Clearwater FL - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

      Re: Free Firewood in Tampa, Clearwater FL

      My problem is where to put it.....I've already made 2 trips and brought back the equivelent of 1/2 cord each time. Today I'm headed to Lowes to get the chain link posts to build the storage rack shown on another post.

      I don't know how long the lumber will be available. Seems a couple of adventurous guys struck a deal with all of the millwork and cabinet shops in the area and started hoarding all of the cut offs. There plan was to create glued and pressed hardwood fireplace logs using a non volotile soy based glue. They never got the project off the ground and left the property owner with a parking lot full of this lumber.
      I spoke with the property owner yesterday, he is commited (to a point) in finding a use for the wood, understanding it has value to the right people. Also, his removal cost are going to be pretty high, I'm guessing at least 12-15 of the large 30 cubic yard dumpsters would be packed full.

        The moral of the story: Don't start accumulating materials before your business is in the prototype + business plan stage.

        Fire logs in Florida? Maybe coals to Newcastle next

          Yeah, I got a chuckle out of him telling me there plan was to produce logs here. Although there quite a few homes with fireplaces and even more with backyard chimineas, they are only used a few evenings a year...no volume sales of wood here. Guess they had a grand nationwide distribution plan.
