Planing stages for 40" castable in Iowa - 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.

  • Planing stages for 40" castable in Iowa

    Hey all,

    Great day here in Iowa, finally doing post on my own oven. I would appreciate any ideas, corrections... on my plan. So here it goes:
    1. 40" Refractory Castable
    2. interior height 18"
    3. opening width 20"
    4. opening height 11 1/3"
    5. 2.5" thick walls
    6. layer of radiant heat barrier
    7. 2" Ceramic blanket for insulation
    8. 4" loose vermiculite on top of the blanket
    9. 4" concrete heart
    10. 4" vermiculite concrete or 2" FB Board
    11. firebrick floor
    12. oven sits directly of firebrick
    13. 8" chimney

    I do have a question regarding the vent above the door, the shape and size. Does the vent area needs to be bigger then the chimney or roughly the same? Is it better to have wider vent opening that about as wide as the opening width or more of square centered above the opening? See 2 vent options on my drawing.

    Thank you all for your help in advanced!!!
