materials list for 36" Pompeii oven - 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.

  • materials list for 36" Pompeii oven

    It looks as though the 36" Pompeii oven would suit us very well. Can anyone point me at the complete materials list and plans for it?
    Many thanks.

    36 plans

    There have been far more 42's than 36" built here.

    I'll leave the material list to someone who has already built one,
    If it's a help you can count bricks from my cad drawings of the 36:

      Materials List (so far) - Updated 1/5

      The building plans on the web site hold true (short of the many alterations and improvements suggested in these forums) for both size ovens. So far, the most challenging aspect was cutting the bricks to span the door opening, but with a little experimenting, it's not a big deal... Here's the running list:

      4" @ 71"x80" = 22 - 80# bags of concrete
      (I used fiber reinforced concrete so no steel was necessary)

      Roughly 48 blocks (I poured a lintle across the opening)
      12 - #4 x 36" rebars
      Each cell requires 1 60# bag of concrete ($3.29)

      6.5" hearth requires a smidge more than 8 cf of perlite (I got mine in 4 cf bags - $7.95)
      1 - 94# bag of portland cement ($8.36)
      6 - #4 x 10' rebars cut to fit ($4.29)
      17 - 80# bags of concrete ($4)

      Oven Dome & Floor
      1 - 24" x 2.5" x 3/16" angle iron (stainless is nice)
      200 fire bricks ($1.17)
      1 - 25# bag fire clay ($8)
      1 - 94# bag portland cement
      2 - 60# bags general purpose sand ($2.49)

          Stucco Finish (scratch coat and finish)
          1 - 60# bag stucco cement ($4)
          4 - 60# bags sand

          Just add some paint or pigment to the stucco and you're done! Happy building...
