  • Brick Oven Photos

    Here we go.

    Let's use this Forum as the central location for all photos -- ovens that you are working on, ovens where you have questions, finished ovens, and photos of brick oven recipes.

    Storage isn't expensive, so let's build the world's first 1GB Brick Oven Photo Journal. We're open for submissions.

      Stucco

      David,
      Did you do the stucco work yourself? That is one of the last steps for me, and it is the one area that I have not dabbled in. I guess i am going to learn as i go. Any tips? We did fire up last weekend and cooked our first pizzas also. Your oven looks great.

          Hi stan/michael,
          I have just coated it with Quickrete quickwall fibreglass bonding mix.It is expensive @around $15/bag,but goes on easy and can be shaped quite well.I need to put a final finnish on this which Quickrete offer in various grades.I've never done any stucco or mortar work before so I am probably going the most expensive way.I'm happy with the results so far though.Now i've actually started coking in it ,everything else has been less of a priority though!I wanted to have it ALL done by the 4th July,but my Wife has other plans for me!Good luck and stick with it.

            I really like your design. Stucco will look great. Just plan well and go for it!

              Posting externally hosted pictures

              I've never used photobucket before, and just went to their site for the first time, for Marcel's oven photos. I want to be able to insert images into the text of a posting for better explainations of what I'm talking about.

              This image is located on this page:

              http://photobucket.com/albums/a318/marceld/?start=20

              Each photo has a URL:

              http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a3...tangleiron.jpg

              Below that is a TAG:

              <img src="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a318/marceld/40puptentangleiron.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">

              Below that is a IMG:



              This is an experiment to see what happens when I post this.

                results of above:

                As you can see, the URL returns a clickable link, The TAG shows up as text, and the IMG brings in the picture.

                The IMG format is ***[IMG]***followed by the url of the image in jpeg format***[/IMG]***. (ignore stars) Seems easy enough to me.

                  (M) Dear David,

                  Thanks for doing my homework for me and arriving at a useful solution. So, if I understand correctly, you simply copied the URL:

                  http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a...ntangleiron.jpg

                  from PhotoBucket and pasted it into your previous post? ____

                  (M) If so, then I guess that my doing essentially the same, but from David's post, will also return that same image? If so, I apologize for the duplication but David's " ....experiment to see what happens when I post this." may fill a void and preclude users invariably needing to go to an external URL. Paul had explained the process in a far earlier post but not being a "wirehead" I was unclear about how to also sucessfully transfer those images.

                  (M) Let's see if this post produces an "in-line" image or if we will need to click on the URL, above to view that image.

                  (M) Thanks again, David.

                  Ciao,

                  Marcel

                    Do we need soldiers?

                    #36

                    (M) This "Title" was not intended as a political statement. Nor is this Sub Title:

                    How about sleeping soldiers?

                    (M) If you look at the image above, you will see a standard orientation of bricks on either side of the entrance in "soldier" formation.

                    (M) Note that I have not used the standard orientation in my first 2 dome courses but have opted for sleeping "splits".

                    (M) Now I postulate this question; that if essentially the same area and volume could be filled by letting these arch soldiers "sleep", i.e. lay them down on their 9" x 4.5" sides ( or even 9" x 2.5" sides?) would we not have a more stable arch base without losing any function? ___

                    (M) If you see a problem with this orientation, please contact me immediately, as barring any important caveats, that is what I propose doing.

                    (M) Using as an example only one side we would have five firebricks laying on their 9" x 4.5" sides. That would give us a height of five times their 2.5" thickness and brings us to the recommended 12.5" height.

                    (M) Drawing from the Step by Step instructions for validation we read:

                    "We recommend either a 36" or 42" (internal diameter) round oven, using either a high (Tuscan), or low (Neapolitan) vault design. These sizes provide you with enough oven space to cook multiple pizzas at a time, or to cook a roast with multiple side dishes, without being too large or difficult to build, or too slow to fire. The trade-offs between the two oven styles is described below, and will help you decide which oven to build."

                    (M) Is this new orientation "simpler than possible" ?

                    P.S. Because this references one of my photos, I decided to leave this question in the Photos Forum.

                      that's how i've posted all of my images--by copy and pasting the <img> tag into my message. as you guys discovered, photobucket's whole intent is to do precisely this---host pictures online, and make it easy for the user to insert the code to use them. however, this leaves james with no archive of pizza oven photos if photobucket ever disappears.

                      it seems like marcel's is a good idea: leave a link to your album with all of your pictures in it, and save the good ones as an attachment in the photos section or wherever is relevant. i always thought my photos were a bit too many for one thread, but then again, several people said they appreciated the detail.

                        picture format

                        I just posted a photo essay on the "chimney" forum using the [IMG]...[/IMG] format. The only other thing to note is that there is a limit of 4 images per page, even if they are externally hosted.

                          (M) I like this way of sharing the existance of either photos or text which may not fit on a given Forum, or fit on several. In this case his Chimney photos could fit on either this Brick Oven Photos Forum, or on the "Chimney" (& vent?) forum. Presumably not wanting to duplicate images but still wanting to share them, he posted the above notice.

                          (M) Despite some low light difficulties, his images of Dublin chimneys have caused me to consider a far more ornamental approach to my oven's chimney; but first, .... let's get the dome finished!

                              My 4'x3' AS Oven in Ontario

                              Hello Forum Members,

                              Finally, I bought a digital camera, my first, so don't laugh at the attachments. They're deliberately low res, but you can still tell I'm figuring out how the camera actually works. It's a dull, snowy day here, and I should have used the flash. Anyway, you'll see I'm not quite finished with the trim or portico enclosure. I'll post some better pics when I get better at it.

                              Cheers,
                              Jim
