rebar horizontal in the block stand - 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.

  • rebar horizontal in the block stand

    I know folks put rebar vertically in the cores with cement, but do a lot of folks put rebar horizontally in the wall, I have seen some do this but it seems overkill especially if you are mortaring the wall, thoughts?

    I think some people do this as an alternate to angle irons to hold up the lintel over the wood storage door. Since I don't even know what this lintel is for, you can just put the extra rebar in your support slab and dispense with this row of blocks entirely, I'd say I don't know any reason for this at all. I put a decorative arch above my wood storage area, but it was at the support slab and insulation layer, and I have full access to the wood storage area.

    I'd say that unless you live in a really earthquake prone area, don't bother. Even if you do (NJ?) you may not want a structural masonry object anyway.

      Rebar is pretty cheap.

      I would put a 1/2 rebar in the top course of blocks. It helps if this top course has the "knock out" type of block.
