first course on top of FB insulating board? - 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.

  • first course on top of FB insulating board?

    The floor is inside the dome. I would like to use a full brick for the first course. Any issue with standing the bricks upright for the first course and placing them on the FB board that is surrounding the oven floor? I am sure this is fine just want to make sure there is not a compression issue with the FB board if it do it this way.

    The first course is called the soldier course and is fine to stand vertically. Just ensure that you cut around 15˚ off the top edge in order to kick the next course at the required angle and also reduce the mortar thickness.
    Check out my build as there are alot of pictures with the finer detail to see,. I have attached one here to show the full solier course.

      No compression issues either with the insulation board or the vermiculite concrete. These materials are very strong in compression.

        No problem with the soldier course standing on the insulation. In fact, not having it on the insulation would allow heat to leak from the dome to the hearth slab.
