Crap, some help on the face - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Crap, some help on the face

    Crap, i started to enclose my oven with 1/2" concrete board and have installed it all around the sides and back.
    the front of the oven i just have it installed on top half so i can complete the arch etc.

    my problem is a miscalculated when building my brick arch not figureing the brick needs to stick out from the board.

    Can i use 1/4" on the bottom half and tape the seem where they meet, put a skim coat of mortar on the seem to blend it, then apply stone veneer?

    See attached bad drawing

    Any help would be great.

    What does it matter if the arch brick are recessed?

      Problem is the arch is built already and some if the bricks are set to stick out 1/2 inch from the board and some are recessed

      I'm not a mason and just proved it

      My thought was if I went with 1/4" it might mask it slightly

        So, a 1/4" is all you would be gaining. I don't this making a difference with a stone veneer.

          If you want to hide a mistake, it seldom works to try and make it smaller, make it larger and it will look intentional. If you are working with a +/- of 1/4" on the arch brick, make the arch revel 3/4"-1" and it will not be seen.
