Build in Thailand - 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.

  • Build in Thailand

    After lurking and a few dumb questions I am now ready to start what I hope ends up being a WFO as nice as the ones I have seen on the forum. Since I am retired and in the final stages of haing a house built I have no real interest in the manual labor it takes to build an oven. I have found a "contractor" that has built ovens before and is willing to make adjustments to the build. Also he thinks he can finish in 15 days which probably means 30 but much quicker than I could do.

    My house contractor is pouring the slab on Monday, since I am never sure what kind of quality I get here my slab will be 25 cm (10") thick with rebar in the area of the oven....corner build.

    The pic below is of the forms, note that they are not exact, the tile guy will finish to the correct size...that's the way it is. If too large they cut to size. They love to put concrete in and then drill, chop and cut a few days later. Labor is cheap.

    I will post pics and any comments will be appreciated. BTW the actual hearth and oven build will not start until March 15th.

    Hi Mike - Sounds like there are some interesting local building techniques there. I am sure that if you know what you want and how you want it done then you will get a good outcome.

    Look forward to following the progress of your build.

    Good luck with it all.
    Cheers ......... Steve

      Re: Build in Thailand

      Interesting is the keyword, almost everything here is built with concrete so it should be ok. My foreman on the job thinks I am a little crazy for a slab this thick. I also have received my inusaltion and I will have 4" ceramic in the floor with 5-6" blanket around the dome....a little overkill but after reading the forum I am not taking the insulation lightly.

      My slab is thicker than the one they laid for my wife's sala, pic of almost finished sala below. Sorry for the sideways pic, not sure how to remedy this.
