Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

    63% of 21" =13.25"

    Its the golden ration, golden mean, Fibonacci ratio.

    I made my dome height to suit an opening height I wanted.
    The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

    My Build.

      By proven formula: Door height would be 21" x 63% (ideal) 13.23"

      By experience: Since 19"-20" door width is called for in the Forno Bravo plans for a 42" Pompeii, figure a 47" oven (111% of 42") door width (20" x 111%) could be as wide as 22.20".

      For an expert second opinion consult with 48" Pompeii master Doug (Karangi Dude).
