casting the pizza oven - 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.

    So how is this working out? Just noticed this casting. I have interest in this!

      Re: casting the pizza oven

      Because of the form and weight of each section, I'd imagine that they would not be easy to assemble, particularly the last piece. How did you go? any pics?

        actually I set the first piece in place, wife balanced it, placed second one held itself up at that point. placed third and fourth piece wiggled it around and it all came together. the first piece was the entry so it almost was balanced

          it has been patched with a high temp mortar, which was compatible with the refractory

                Hi IronPony,

                Nice quality work. I am glad you decided to continue on the forum. Your work is topnotch and will help others who want to do a cast oven. Maybe you could do a picassa album show all of your steps. Have a nice holiday season.

                  Re: casting the pizza oven


                  I am very interested in building castable oven but my only concern is the performance issue if there is any. Have you had a chance to use yours? How is it holding temps, how long does it take to heat it up? Any info would be more then helpful.
                  thanks in an advance

                      I know this is an old thread but this mold is amazing. Im hoping Iron pony will respond. Im wondering (well Im wondering a lot of things about this casting but right no im wondering what the material is that was used to make the revel on the sections. I mean the thin piece is either luan or Masonite but Im wondering about the thicker piece attached to it. If any one knows I would greatly appreciate it. I believe this will be the mold system I use it seem perfect for my needs.
                      Thank you

                        I did my casting couple of years ago in a very similar fashion. I used a styrofoam sheet for the "revel". Cut it to the size and since it's bendable you can just glue it to the form.
