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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


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.

    How do you cut curves/arcs in fire brick? Thanks, Larry

    You cut a series of lines, then finish the curve by moving the brick along the edge of the blade. Internal (concave) curves, are a little more difficult but are done the same way.

      Can you use a grinder to smooth edges?

        You could but the blade does a pretty good job by itself. Plus it's way less dust (assuming you have a wet saw)

        If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

          When I cut curves in plywood, I hold the blade about an 1/8" deep, and make multiple passes, successively getting a little deeper each time. But, I think Dmun has the proper method for something as hard as brick.
          My oven (for now):

            If you gradually drag the face of the brick you are cutting across the blade at 90degree angle, you'll end up with a concave cut matching the outside diameter of your (10"?) blade. To match the more shallow arc of the interior of an oven, tilt the brick less than 90degrees.
