Plywood stuck to bottom of hearth - 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.

  • Plywood stuck to bottom of hearth

    I built the form to support the hearth, but got a guy who was building a guest house next door to look it over and then pour the hearth. His crew added two more cross supports and while I was away poured the hearth. I have removed all of the legs supporting the hearth, but have had no luck getting the plywood away from the concrete. Obviously no release agent was applied to the plywood.

    What to do?

    What happens if I leave it there?

    Any tips for prying it loose?

      Set a saw blade to just less than the thickness of the ply and cut it. It should break easily at the cut.

        I put in several screws, but didn't screw them in all the way. Then I used a pry-bar on the screw heads to work the plywood loose.

          I used the screw trick also, worked for one side. I had to screw them in on the other piece to leverage the wood off the cement, but it didn't hurt it any. I worked slowly and around the perimeter.
