Gaps in the Brick Floor - 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.

    Don't worry about gaps

    Hi, the firebricks I used had many imperfections as well. I set the worst of them aside and laid the floor with the best of them. There were gaps here and there, but they fill with ash as you use the oven. Vertical irregularities are a bigger deal, my advice would be to try to get everything flush vertically and don't sweet minor gaps between bricks.

        Grind 'em flat

        The alternate is to get a 4" gringer and a masonary wheel and grind the irregularities after laying the floor but before you construct your walls.

          I think JC and JW have it right.

          Bricks out of line vertically will catch your pizza peel, and will be hassle. You can either tap them with a rubber mallet to get them smooth, or grind them out. You'll be glad you did.

          Gaps horitonally between the bricks are les of an issue, though you should be able to get them pretty tight. Worst case is that you get a little ash in there, which isn't a problem.

          We have a pizzeria nearby, where the oven is as old as the hills. The floor appears to be real stone pieces worked together (or some very, very old floor tiles) that have huge gaps, and the pizzaiola just keeps cranking out pizzas -- both for sit down dinner and take out. The place is always packed and humming away.
