Buy kit or find own materials in Portland?? - 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.

  • Buy kit or find own materials in Portland??

    I am a newbie from Portland and I'm about to embark on building a Pompeii 42" but I'm debating whether it's worth it to purchase the kit. Somewhere the plans document it says that purchasing the kit "can actually save you money" or something to that affect. Anyone willing to give me some advice as to this?? The kits for this oven cost $1200 but does not include the base or any finishing materials; kits include from the cooking floor through the dome insulation.
    Please advise.

    Welcome, to the forum. You can do it for less than the cost of a kit if you can find all of your materials locally as the shipping can add up quickly. Do your own research, their are several others in your neck of the woods and I am sure some of them will chime in shortly.

      I live in Northern California and I had no trouble sourcing materials locally for a 32inch Pompeii . I doubt you would have trouble in Portland.

      When you say "kit" do you mean buying all the bricks, mortar, insulation, etc? Or do you mean buying a cast oven dome?

        Source locally. The cost of shipping makes the kits not that practical.

        I put together a source list for another poster in Vancouver, should work for you as well
