Just starting first oven - 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.

  • Just starting first oven

    This is a first at everything, except the foundation. Poured the slab last week, hopefully finish the dry stacking tonight(friday). hopefully be ready to form the hearth on Sunday. I will be sending pictures soon. Hope to have pizza by Xmas. Ha Ha

    Excellent - the dry stacking and filling the cores is pretty quick, especially if you have help with mixing or, better, a mixer. Maybe you can roast a turkey for Christmas as well

      Excellent! Have fun! Don't stress yourself out on the Christmas date. It is doable, but don't kill yourself!

        I will have it done soon. A friend put an oven up last year and he is coming to help on Wed. I am looking to start the oven in maybe two to three weeks. One question what did you guys use to cut the block where the angle iron is over the opening. I just bought cement blades for my hand saw and my big radial arm saw.

          Those cement cutting blades throw a lot of dust. Don't foul the bearings of your good radial arm saw cutting brick. You can do most of what you need with a cheap 4 1/2 inch import angle grinder with a diamond blade. They are cheap enough to throw out. You can even use it to score and break your firebrick if you don't want to spring for a wet saw. Wear a dust mask for any of this.

            Also, try soaking the block prior to cutting, it will reduce the dust kicked up.

              Thanks guys for the tips I will purchase a cheap grinder and soak the bricks. I finished the block and poured the cores today. Sunday I will hopefully finish forming the floor.
