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.

  • An interesting book.

    An interesting book.
    I just got this book today off Epay, I have just flicked through it and havent read it as yet.
    It shows how to construct etc.

    This may turn out to be a fun construction.

    On a side note, I got the book from a UK seller with free postage for A$28, an online well known local book seller wanted A$80, no wonder they are all shutting up shop.

      Knowledge, fun building it, and why not?

      I do have a gas forge for metalwork and I thought maybe I could utilize some ideas from the book and build a wood forge.

        Sounds like me at times, wouldnt catch me reading a book in this lifetime.. but when it comes to guide/how to's.. i'll read them all day..

        Not to mention once i learn how to do something, I must do it..

        Example 1 - my pizza oven.

        Last week I read about cheese making, now my Rennet/Thermometer have arrived in the post ill be making cheese 2nite..

        Its a curse, but a good curse at that.

              Thanks John but it was more the aspect of having a play with the bricks...

                Re: An interesting book.

                Im glad I didnt pay A$80 for this book, its main emphasis is on clay and glazes and how to achieve such?

                I thought it was about building kilns?

                There are quite a few diagrams on building the kiln but the narrative is lacking as to what, why, how.
                I can pick up from the pics what is going on but a newbie to brickwork would seriously struggle.

                  The book you really need is "Kilns" by Daniel Rhodes, publ. By Pitman. This book is considered a a classic and a must have by potters and kiln builders. Gives a complete rundown of types, guidelines for sizes and relative flue and throat dim. history, materials, proportion, refractory info. firing, etc. etc.
                  Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
