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:

  • Scratch coat

    I have just insulated my oven with 4 inches of ceramic fibre, what should I use for a scratch coat for my stucco finished dome.

      I agree with the first reply. You can look at the link of my build below. The plaster (what you call mortar) worked out perfectly. I suppose your oven will not sit out in the open, but will be covered.

      Best of luck.

          How will you finish the final enclosure. I used scratch/brown coat stucco with acrylic additive to increase the water resistance. I will not have a cover so the final shell needs to be water tight
