My 36" build in Lehi Utah - 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.

  • My 36" build in Lehi Utah

    It was a lot of work but it was worth it....I first built a steel frame and then painted it and screwed 5/8" plywood to the frame. Next I wrapped the plywood in two layers of roofing paper. Then metal lathe was installed around the base making sure to caulk all of the staples. Next the cultured stone was installed to match the stone on our house. Two concrete slabs were poured in my garage and then installed on the base. The slabs were then painted with a flexible water proofing material to make sure the tile does not buckle or crack. Porcelain tile was then installed, again making sure to use mortar mixed with a flexible additive so that the tile would be able handle the winter weather here in Utah. The insulation, oven floor and oven kit were placed on the slabs and centered. I installed 3 layers of insulation over the oven and then used 20 gauge wire to hold the metal lathe to the oven. I brown coated (stucco) the oven and let it cure for a week. During the time the brown coat stucco was curing I started curing the oven. After about 5 days of curing I installed a color coat stucco on the oven to match the trim on our house. The oven is so insulated that it can be 1200 degrees at the top of the oven and you cannot feel any heat while touching the outside of the oven. Forno Bravo?......BRAVO!!!!
