Did you make arches w/o a 10" brick saw? - 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.

  • Did you make arches w/o a 10" brick saw?

    I'm definitely in the remedial class for oven building, and had planned to make it all as basic and easy as possible. However, after reading many, many threads, I'm inspired, and thinking about making arches, instead of a flat oven entry. Will this be possible with my cheapo HF tile saw that requires two passes? I'd like to avoid dropping $300 on the HF brick saw it I can, and can put up with imperfections.
    Here's mine:

    You do not even need to cut the bricks to make an arch, it just looks better. The ones in my avatar are not cut.

      I did not rely on the brick saw that much for my arch brick. Though I did use some brick saw cuts for spacers.

      I have no doubt that I could have built a fully functional WFO with a brick set as others have done on this forum. A tile saw and a brick set, even better. However, the 10" brick saw from HF is the "little red wagon" that I did not have when I was a kid . It is the "big boy's toy" that you will have a lot of fun with . It opens up a lot of options, creativity, and just makes the project easier. And, as more than one have said on this site, you can get most (if not all) of your money back on Craigs List when you are done with it .

      just sayin'
