Curved Cuts in bricks - 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!

  • Curved Cuts in bricks


    I am about to start building my dome on the weekend and cant quite work out how people of this forum get so nicely curved cuts in their floor bricks.

    can anyone offer suggestions?

    It's easy to nibble away the edges of the brick with a tile saw, especially for outside radius cuts. The bricks are fairly soft.

      I second deejayoh's reply. Also, you only need about three cuts to get a pretty round looking edge.

          cut off in angles smaller and smaller as you get round and rounder trust me they always look better in pictures you will never see the edge anyways get them close and move on better places on the build to ponder over like the angles on the dome bricks

            I wondered the same thing and just decided to make straight cuts anyway, splitting the diff between the front and back edges.

            Pretty hard to tell they're straight cuts from the photos, and you'll never see them in the finished product anyway.
