***Have You Ever Tried Sycamore*** - 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.

  • ***Have You Ever Tried Sycamore***

    Hey All,
    I have a TON (literally) of Sycamore, This stuff burns great, but splitting it is tuffer than getting permission from your wife to buy a hot rod... It has been sitting in 16-20 inch logs over 2 years, I think I have about 12 of them..Thats just some of them in the pic... Once you get the wedge in, Its still tuff but a great workout. Guess I will wait till my nephew brings the logsplitter over..

    I got a bunch of it already split but many of the pieces are too big for my wfo. It came from last year's storm damaged trees. It burns beautifully in my multi-fuel furnace to heat the house. It has a twisty turny grain structure that makes splitting almost impossible. They used to use sycamore for draw sides because it was very stable after it was sawn and dried. Once cut for furniture it looks great. Nice color and pattern. It almost seems like a waste to burn it because it looks go good cut up for projects.

      Hey Bill...
      I have a bunch of it saved for projects, It has been drying in what I call my wood humidoor... Its a small sealed insulated cabinet with a fan to move the air and a standard light bulb for drying heat... It usually stays about 80 degrees in there.. I cut it into 6 inch square chunks about 2 feet long...

      Here is a pic of a small shovel I carved out of it..
