Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:


Thank you for understanding.

    The IT needs to be specific to the dimensions of your oven, so you may want to make.

    But they are super easy to make. Cheesesteak has one of the simplest, cheapest approaches to this on his thread


    Get a strap-type door hinge, a piece of 2" x ~ 3/8" x ~ 24" hardwood, and a simpson strongtie bracket. Put that together with some hardware and you've got yourself an indispensible tool

      Unless you want to take 3 or 4 times as long to build your oven or to have it 'perfectly semi-spherical', give them a miss and just use a quadrant (half a semicircular) plywood pattern as the bricks will stick with the home brew right up to the last 3 courses.
      You can easily build the dome in 2 easy days that way.
      I completed Hendo's oven (the originator of the Indespensible tool) after he died. My oven was built in a couple of week-ends whereas Hendo's took 18 months and he had a bricklaying instructor do his brickwork. You might like to check out both our builds to get some ideas/suggestions to make the job easier.

      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

        Not all of us will complete the oven in the same amount of time per method used. Do compare the builds as nissanneil suggests but compare several other builds also, then make your game plan.
