Stucco Questions - 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.

  • Stucco Questions

    I applied the fiber blanket and first coat of stucco today and have some pictures in my build post. Have a couple of questions about the second coat of stucco.

    First- how long should I wait for the first coat to dry before I apply the second coat? I'm planning to increase the lime amount in the next layer to help with weather proofing? Will also use a finer sand- does this make sense?

    I've already fired the modular oven with some small fires and how quickly should I be able to do another small fire- to continue the curing of the oven itself and to start curing the stucco? Would it make sense to do one curing fire before putting on the second coat to give that coat a start on really drying out from the inside?

    Realize there are probably many different ways to do this and as long as the fires are kept small, they probably won't hurt.

    We finally have a few days of weather without rain forecast so drying to take advantage and make some serious progress.

    Last question for this post- can anyone recommend a good sealer or paint for the final stucco to keep it as water tight as possible? Something available at a big box store or paint dealer?

    Thanks to all for the help and encouragement so far- hoping to be cooking pizza next week!
