Cut some fuel at lunch today - 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.

  • Cut some fuel at lunch today

    It was a nice day so I figured I'd start working my way through my piles of alder to stack up some more fuel. My WFO is still in the planning stages, but I figure I might as well lay in a supply of wood and have it nicely dried and stacked when the oven is finished.

    Smaller alders I'd just planned on running through the woodchipper

    No, I didn't make the large woodpiles behind the saw during lunch

    Great thinking there Paul,

    I am trying to get to 2 years ahead on seasoned wood. You wont regret saving the smaller branches. Even smaller branches than that (twigs), are great! for kindling .

      I live in sub tropics and of course have a very different climate.
      Sorry if this sounds silly but I've never been in ice and snow conditions.
      Question does leaving the wood out in the open in ice and snow help dehydrate it? It will certainly do that to poorly wrapped steak in my freezer!

        Fair enough question. I don't think leaving the wood on the ground will help dry it out, in fact I need to get it off the ground sooner than later as our snow is beginning to melt and the ground will be getting fairly damp. Left on the ground the wood will get waterlogged and begin to rot. But, I need to pick up some pallets for stacking the wood and was stretching my lunch hour to do the cutting I did What I'll do once we get the house finished is build a fairly large covered shed for the wood. I'm just not sure where the shed will be located and want to keep as much stuff out of the way of the construction crew as possible.

        What does help in the drying is our low humidity, and breezes Where the lot is located we'll face hurricane force winds every year and I've heard wind gusts have been measured over 200 kph It's a good thing WFO's are heavy
