Finally finished my 42" Pompeii !! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Finally finished my 42" Pompeii !!

    I finally finished my 42" WFOa three year journey. Two weeks ago I finished grouting the field stone. The last thing I need to do was finish off the bottom of the WFO. My wife didnt like the look of the wood and tools stacked in there where everyone can see it..."too messy looking". So I thought rather than just put doors on it to hide the mess I would make a large wooden box on wheels that I can pull out to get at the fire wood rather than crawl under the WFO.

    This weekend I will put a couple of coats of eurathane on the wood box door to pretty it up then fill it with wood....now I need another project. ...Come to think of it I do have lots of that field stone left over so I may look a building a small outdoor work station for making pizzas.

      Great job on that oven! I really like the cradle for the wood and ash bucket. Great idea.

              Thanks everyone. I owe so much to all the people on this forum that provided ideas and help when I needed it.

              I may have to change one thing on my wood box. I used castor wheels on the front and non castors at the back, thinking it would be easyer to steer it into the WFO. When I try to pull the woodbox out the front castor wheels want to swing 180 degrees and this pushes the box to the side causing it to push on the WFO wall.

              I will need to replace the castor with non castor wheels so it pulls out straight.....
