Base size for a 36" corner installation - 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.

  • Base size for a 36" corner installation

    I'm trying to figure out what the dimensions need to be for a 36" pompeii for a corner installation. Can I get it done with a smaller imprint than the standard ~60-70 that is recommended. What would both sizes be - recommended vs. smallest.


    PS it's been awhile since I had geometry

    Re: Base size for a 36" corner installation

    Remember that the limiting factor on the corner install is the amount of space between dome and wall (for enclosure) or amount of space left for the igloo with insulation. This is, of course, true for all the ovens but the corner install is unique in that the spots that are close are different. If you think of the oven as a compass with you looking north if you are looking into it, the close spots will be NE, SE, SW, and NW as opposed to N,E, and W on a standard install.

    Depending on whether you plan on using insulfrax or loose vermiculite/perlite (or a combination) you will need less or more space. The plans cover the recommended amounts.

    Sketch it out and put the plans up here - believe me, we all love kibitzing!

      Thanks for the reply. Based on your photos it looks your base is approx 60/60 inches at the "backs" then 40/40 inches on the "sides." You mentioned you built a 40' internal. I'm building a 36" and think your dimensions would work fine. Just wanted to double check my logic.
