Angle cut the bricks - 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.

  • Angle cut the bricks

    Hi, I have finished the foundation for my oven and will pour a insulating layer of leca mixed with portland cement next weekend. I guess I will start with the bricklaying in two weeks time.

    I have read the instructions that state that one must start angle-cutting the bricks as soon as gaps start to appear, this concerns the half brick method.

    My point is that the gaps are truly there from the first layer, unless an oven of several meters in diameter is constructed. What is right and what is wrong in this?

    I have seen some use half bricks all the way to the top and a lot of mortar.
    I calculated that 20 kg of mortar will do 300 bricks on the sides, and a lot more is needed between layers. That is costly.

    I will cut all my bricks to fit snuggly side to side but not bevel them, I will use the cut of pieces for that job.
    What about filling the larger gaps with lower grade mortar? Stupid idea?
    Let's keep it metric
