New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • cutting cement board

    I am planning on forming a brick arch for my under stand wood storage. I was planning on framing the corner with hardibacker attached to 1x1. Does the hardibacker cut with a jigsaw- I have never used the stuff before?
    Thanks,

    Eric

    Eric, normally it's just scored and snapped but there is no reason you can't use a jig saw.

      I have heard of scoring and snapping, but I need a curve. Thanks Les.

        For curved cuts on cement boards I use an abrasive (no teeth) blade on a zigsaw.

          If you use a standard toothed blade with cement board or hardi, you'll eventually end up with a no teeth blade.

              Why don't you use a router a zipsaw? Best way to cut round shapes. Just make a jig to keep you perfectly round. I am in the process of doing the exact same thing (a brick arch for the wood storage). I used MDF as it cuts much easier and I only need it to to hold up long enough for my mortar to dry. I will attempt to post some pics tomorrow but I've not tried adding pics yet. In the meantime you can check out my gallery photos posted in my signature line?

                I'm pretty sure you can buy cement board jigsaw blades and they are only a few dollars. I've used a circular saw many times for straight cuts (with a cement board blade) and diamond impregnated holes saws for plumbing cutouts. Cement board circular saw blades are pretty cheap ($10?).....the diamond holes saw are a different story - $20 and up, each.
                Try Lowes or Home Depot for the jig saw blades, I am pretty sure I have seen them, I believe they were from Bosch.

                  I used the "Alltool 9000" AKA The angle grinder.

                    Here is my brick arch under construction with form in place. I do a section and then slide the form down.

                        I use a jig saw for curved cuts, but it dulls the blade real fast.

                          Here is a couple photos of my form and arch. I just completed it today. I just used a piece of scrape 1 x 10. cut it with a jug saw and screwed a couple pieces of 2 x 4 in the middle.

                            Use a 4" grinder with a diamond blade, and a dust mask.
