design of compact corner stand - 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!

  • design of compact corner stand

    I have limited space due to the location. It will be a corner installation, and I will have plenty of counter space to the left, but can't expand too far in the other directions

    I will be building a 36" high-vault, walled-enclosure-style, using 8" slump blocks.

    I see in the Pompeii instructions pg 17, there is a diagram of a corner installation. The dimensions look like 46"x46" square. Is that the edges of the block stand, or just the hearth, or what?

    If I really need 59x70 I may need to re-evaluate

    What is the most compact stand you have seen around here?

    Seems fairly high? You need to get the heat down to where the food will be so a lower oven would be better.

      For a 36" interior diameter oven with wall enclosure figure as this:
      36" for oven floor
      9" for brick dome using half bricks
      8" of insulation(depends on material)
      8" of wall enclosure

      total of 61" wide by 61" deep minimum. You will need an small extension of your base for your vent opening and flu for a corner of at least 10" as well.

      Hope that helps. You can always build an oven that will fit the space you have. Dont scrap the plan just because a smaller oven is all you can build.

      My Progress:
