Removal of dome form work? - 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.

  • Removal of dome form work?

    Hi. I completed my dome for my WFO on the weekend (I used a polystyrene from). How long should I wait before I remove the form??

      Hi John.

      I pulled the from work out at lunch time and it didn't fall down (yet).

      Its starting to look good. Purchased stainless steel flu at lunch time. Oven entry arch looks good and will do the exterior arch once I have cleaned up a bit inside.

      Cant wait to start the curing phase.

        Hi Jase,
        when I built my dome (and laid the hearth bricks) in 2 days I removed the bricks supporting the top dome courses immediately and then stood on top of it, yep 85kg on wet mortar/bricks.
        I did this also to enable me to clean the inside brick faces of surplus mortar when they were bedded onto the sand form.
        If it is ever going to collapse, then it was that moment.
        All domes if designed and built correctly are self supporting and should stay in place even without mortar or adhesive.

        Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
