Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    After a couple years, at least, I finally started my oven.

    Here are a couple more pictures.

    My pool is all curves, so I am trying to kind of recreate the shape in my pizza oven. I hope to find the same tile that we used in the pool for the edge of the table. I cantilevered the table, so I went with rebar spaced 6". That is a pain when you really have no idea what you are doing. It supported itself, even after I removed the forms, so I am very happy.

      Looks like a great start. I like the rounded corners on the cantilevered base.

      Looking forward to following your post.

        The insulating layer is done. I think I'm almost ready for bricks. I used about 5:1 vermiculite to concrete, and thought I created a big mess. It didn't seem like it would harden, but a couple days later it is solid.

              What a great start! I don't remember seeing a round hearth cantilevered all around. You have planned well.

              I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
