Fire brick quantities for a Newbie - 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.

  • Fire brick quantities for a Newbie

    Hi guys,

    Have decided to build myself a a 42" Pompeii oven and am putting together an order list and would like to roughly know how many bricks to order. I'm looking at 230 x 114 x 65mm bricks. The pdf estimates 65 bricks for the oven floor, 140 for the oven and 30 ish for the arch. 230 full bricks in total. Does this sound about right? Also was thinking of using a 255mm sliding mite saw with a diamond boade for cutting the bricks and soaking the bricks in water before hand. Does anyone else have any other techniques that a proficient DIY'r could use. Any advice would be gratefully received. Olly
