Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • 2 1/2 inch steel studs for enclosure?

    I am planning out my install of a WFO on a custom metal stand. I want the smallest footprint possible. Would an enclosure made with 2 1/2 inch steel studs and cement board be enough. I notice other builds use larger studs for their enclosures.

    Thanks,

    Scott D.

    I wouldn't try to support the oven on sheetmetal studs of any dimension. Most metal stands are made of rigid structural steel welded together.

    If it's just to support the cement board on top of your support slab, I'm sure the smaller ones would work fine. Remember, a round oven only approaches the edge of the square support in three places. You could use the standard studs and cut them away in those three places.

    Remember to leave room for your insulation, whatever you do.

      Dmun,
      This would only be for the enclosure around the oven.

        This studs should be fine for the oven enclosure. Do you have enough room for the needed insulation?

          Chris,
          Yes there will be 4 inches of the blanket insulation and then the enclosure can be filled with the perilite stuff.
