Round slab dimensions & location - 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.

  • Round slab dimensions & location

    Wanting to pour a round slab for my 36" tuscan style oven. Our driveway is going to be poured next week with an exposed agragate finish. I thought I would have the driveway guys dig and pour my slab while they are at it. I am thinking a 70" circle will do the trick. I have not even got my bricks yet so a little hard to come up with exact measurements etc for how everything will lay out. I like the look of the brick chimney and if I understand things right I should put a stainless pipe inside the chimney as concerns about heat off the chimney and will be about a foot or so away from my deck roof. My questions are....does the 70" sound about right for the foundation slab?.....will the chimney be cool to the touch if an insulated pipe is inside (the roof is fairly flat that is is close to and it is a metal roof, so I figure if I am 2 feet above the roof line and about a foot away I shoud be allright) I want to keep the project as close to the deck and roof as posible so on rainy days we can still enjoy the oven. Thanks for the help, I should be able to figure this out on my own but want to kind of jump on the concrete pour this week as driveway guys comming soon!...wayne

    How big is your oven going to be - and more to the point, how big is the stand going to be? I would think that knowing the stand size would be critical since you have to figure based on the arcs - unless you mean for the stand to be round, too? Either way, I suspect the real masonry/expert guys around here will want to know that in order to help you.

      36" internal or external dimension?

      I believe the plans give the over all dimension of the ovens from front to back. On to this you need to add thickness for each material you are going to add. Insulation blanket, vermiculite mixture, stucco, etc. In addition you will need to determine just how your front opening is going to be, this will vary the overall size of the oven from front to back.

      Its hard to say without knowing your desired design.
      70" with an oven having an internal dimension of 36" (centered on the slab) gives you 13" from the outside of the oven to the edge of the slab. Will this work for you? again depends on your design.

        sorry,36" internal. Since I wont get the bricks till after I pour the slab I should probably go with an 80" circle. When you mentioned the 13" from the outside of the oven does that mean from the outside of chimney and enterance arch or just the igloo part itself....thanks
