Indispensible tool UK version - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Indispensible tool UK version

    Any ideas on simplest way to construct a dome construction aid using cheap components we can access/source easily in the UK? Preferably without welding.

    Re: Indispensible tool UK version

    I am planning on using a small lazy susan with a wooden stick mounted on it with a small hinge. At the top of the stick I will just screw on an angle bracket. By using the lazy susan I will be increaseing my dome height slightly due to the thickness of the lazy susan, unless I make some adjustments during the build, but I don't think that the 1/2" or so height will create a problem.

      Let me clairify, when I say stick it is actually a 2" square straight piece of wood.

        Yes, these tools can very easily be made using just wood, screws, and a small hinge....in several different variations. There's no need to weld.

        I think constructing the tool is the easiest part of the oven building process.

          Hey Pete,

          The indispensible tool can be crafted with any material. Here is my crude version of the "I" tool.

          I've also provided some pics of the tool in "action."
