Above Ground Deck Install - 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.

  • Above Ground Deck Install

    Hi FB'ers !

    Ciao -

    I'm have a particular dilemma that I would appreciate feed back on.

    1. The deck is 16 feet above the ground so a concrete/cinder block base is out of the question.
    2. I'm planning on installing a Giordano 70 on my above ground deck so I can carry up the components one at a time.
    3. What options do I have for a movable base ? since a dont want a permanant structure on my deck.
    4. Can I construct a wooden base with casters topped with 2" (or more) of concrete sheeting and then install the oven over that ?

    All responses are sincerely thanked for in advance

    welcome to the forum.
    There are several builds underway and completed using wood for a base. Some have incorporated wheels as well. The oven you have is listed as 450 lbs. So with a concrete base and the weight of the stand you will be around 1000# i would guess. I wouldn't be too concerned with moving it around just because of the weight. I would suggest that you consider the 250# that will be concentrated to about 1 sq inch under each of those casters. If you have a wooden deck, you will want to distribute that somehow. Many builders have done the casters and most admit it never moves after completion.

    Also, have you checked out the stand that FB store offers? Cucina
