How to for a hearth of ferrocement - 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.

  • How to for a hearth of ferrocement


    I have recently completed a project using ferrocement that was inspired by a thread on Forno Bravo in the Outdoor fire place Design. Specially contributor Cvdukes convinced me that it could be done.

    I realize that this is not technically an oven (although it could be) but I think that many of the lessons learned while making my Chimenea from ferrocement could be helpful for oven builders who want to use this material.

    My wife saw me using the Forno Bravo site and now insists that version 2.0 of my chimenea will double as an outdoor oven ;-)

    A very extensive how-to, which much attention to material and construction considerations can be found on Instructables.com.

    For links to the Instructables.com article and to continue the valuable discussion about ferrocement , please follow this link to the "Outdoor Fire Place Design" section:


    I hope you enjoy the story and might find the information useful.
