installing Toscana 90 on a slab granite countertop - 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.

  • installing Toscana 90 on a slab granite countertop

    Hi. New here and am hoping to order the pre-assembled Toscana 90 and place it on custom welded stand with a slab granite top. I have been told that the oven comes on a pallet and that there is really no good way to get it off that pallet before placing it in it's final location. Anybody out there willing to share their pre-assembled Toscana experiences? How do I deal with the pallet? Is it possible to place the oven on the granite relatively accurately and gently enough not to damage the stone? Any experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    I too had the same exact question about the shipping crate and the piece of wood beneath the oven. My Mason feels that a piece of wood should NOT be beneath oven, as it will rot and may warp the base. How to take the wood out before placing the oven on the masonry platform? I called fornobravo Customer service, but as of today, have not heard a response. A techician came on the phone and suggested using 2 forklifts. However, I'm not a contractor and just to get 1 forklift to my home to off load the oven is costing $400. I feel that there should be some built in recess in the base of the oven to allow a forklift to lift oven off of plywood base on pallet, but what do I know?
    If anyone has a solution to this, please post a reply.
