Clay sand ratio for cob 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.

  • Clay sand ratio for cob oven

    Hi all
    I can't seem to find a sand to clay ration for a cob oven.

    I have some clay recommended for WFO.s from a local clay producer.

    I have access to sharp masons sand. Planning a 40 inch wide dome oven.

    I poured the supporting base yesterday.

    It will have to sit for a while as it cool outside.

    Fire brick is bought for the floor, and flue liner.

    Thanks all

    Don't forget to insulate between the supporting slab and the oven floor.
    I think the sand, clay proportion is about 50/50 and usually chopped straw is added to the mix to add reinforcing.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
