4th course and Angle Iron - 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.

  • 4th course and Angle Iron

    I saw a few threads on this but I didn't seem to get a definite answer
    Instead of doing the 4th course of bricks with the angle iron can we
    just leave the opening of the wood section open (no arch or anything)
    and just have the hearth slab span the opening. Will that be strong enough?
    Has anyone done this without extra support such as tubing?
    Would rebar be ok?

    When you say 4th course of brick, do you mean 4th course of cinderblock? If you are talking about spanning the wood storage area of the stand, then I did this, you can see it pretty well here:

    I poured my walls instead of using cinderblock. Also, I am planning on framing it out so that the entrance to the wood storage is not sooo big.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks Drake,
      That is exactly what I was looking for.
      Framing it out and possibly putting a door on it is a good idea.
