Wheel chair bound - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Wheel chair bound

    As I am in a wheelchair and can't build my own oven i managed to find some guys that could. I found them at belloforno.co.uk, and will post the project as it gets on the way! Anyone else used this business before?

    Hello Bob and welcome to the forum

    I come from the UK but haven't heard of the company that you are using for your build.

    In the recent past there has been another wheel chair bound member who has been helped by the Forno Bravo forum with his/her build. Here is the link to that thread....http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...ect-10702.html

    I hope you can get some tips from this link

    All the best with your build

      Hi Bob,

      another day another link to save regarding WFO's

      If they are going to design and build it, perhaps you should buy a peel now and play with it and measure the exact hight that would be best for you so you can reach into the oven and also the depth that you can comfortably reach with it.

      Looks like a professional site tho, will be very interesting to see how they plan to build it vs the FB plans, if you have not I recomend getting the plans from here (they are free) and having a good read so you know whats going on.

      good to see more UK folk on here, and all the best with the deign and build

        Good idea! I will order a long peel and shove a few pizza's around my kitchen to see how I get on . The bello forno guys are designing it, so the opening is 700mm off the ground.

          New peel arrived today, have made it 6 feet long, so it should work a treat!!

              You might try setting up a table at that height and flopping things around on it with the peel - use a couple cans to represent the door. That'll give you a really good idea about the working height. It's a lot easier to raise or lower it before the build than after.

                Also consider a shallow entry to the oven to reduce leverage required to work that peel.
