can I do both Portland layers days apart? - 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.

  • can I do both Portland layers days apart?

    Assuming I am going to do a vermiculite/Portland hearth insulation layer above the straight Portland structural layer, is it absolutely necessary to do both at the same pour, or same day? I imagine the only real reason for this would be for the concrete layers to adhere to one another better, but if the first (structural) layer is not smoothed, is roughed up, wouldn't that provide enough adhering strength? Can't I do both layers, say, a week apart provided the first layer is prepared in such a fashion? The concern has mostly to do with available finances as well as not deciding fully on what I'm doing about insulating.

    You could do it the same day, or wait 10 years. Concrete will adhere to itself rather well, and it is not really necessary to adhere anyway. A lot of weight will be holding that layer in place for a long time.

    This may not be my last wood oven...

      Thanks. That's exactly what I thought. I appreciate the input.
