And another door design...! - 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.

  • And another door design...!

    I've gone the hybrid door route, and built an aluminium box that is fronted with 20mm Oak panel, and filled with perlite and rockwool.

    The oak is sheathed on 3 sides, and only really exposed to the heat on its extreme edges, although the aluminium box is a fairly tight fit in the opening for the oven.

    I've paid heed to the comments about using screws, so where possible its all riveted together.

    Had the first fire of the year tonight, just to put some heat in and drive the moisture out, and with the new door in, I'll be interested to see what the temperatures are in the morning.

    Looks great, especially with your bricks in the dome. How'd it hold up to the heat?

      Its not done too bad against the heat, although I didn't fire up too hot as it was only the first fire of the year ! This weekend will be different though !!

      From a heat retention point of view, I lost about 20% of the heat overnight - this was from about 100c to 80c (thermocouple temps) and what was surprising was the amount the temperature rose in the brick when the door was put in - heat soak into the over was about 10%

      I'll post more over the weekend - the counter top will be finished this weekend, and I'll be firing properly tomorrow..!!
