So do you guys think a 36x36x36 is going to give me enough base for the Giardino60 after the final stucco and everything is added?
The FB.com stand for the Giardino60 is 39 X 47 X 39inches....That would be the most logical size. Call Hiedi at FB.com and ask her, she'll know.

Okay, I called FornoBravo today, and we figured out that a 38x38inch base for the stand would suffice. The only thing she could not answer is weather or not a 1/4" steel constructed/welded stand would be strong enough to support my oven. Any thoughts?

I would say yes. Your fabricator will have an idea of the strength of the steel, ask him.

Default Re: My oven Plans

Still mulling my plans over here. Been in touch with customer service at Fornobravo. Seems that a 38 wide by 38 deep stand is sufficient for the Giardano 60 oven. I downloaded the installation instructions and noted that they specify a 37 inch wide by 41.5 in deep. This is because their plans have a 6 inch "oven landing." I am assuming that this is a 6 in space to give room to build a arch, or to have some space in front. I am not planning on doing an arch, nor do I think I need any space in front of the oven. Does anyone see a need for this, or am I missing something?

Also, turns out that angle iron is sold in 48 inch lengths, so I was thinking maybe I should just get the Giardano 70 oven for 200$ more and build the stand 42 wide and 42 deep. Any thoughts on this? seems like the 4 extra inches is not that big of a deal space-wise, and I would love to cook bigger pizzas, say a 12-14 incher would be better. Thoughts? Is it worth it to get the bigger oven?

Updated plans. Getting closer to ordering the Giardano 60, trying to find cheap deals on angle iron. Might check out a scrap-yard.

Or to have a vent and chimney. Cooking with combustion gasses in your face is going to get old really fast. I'd plan for a vent. Apologies if you've thought of this already, and are talking about something else.

Yes. In anything much under a 36 inch (900mm) you're really pressed for room. I'd get as close to this size as you can.

Lightbulb Re: My oven Plans

Now I am ready to order the oven. Been speaking with a FB dealer to order a Giardino 70. He recommended that I look into building a wood stand for my needs. I LIKE THAT IDEA!

Yes I know.... there will be some haters out there. But if done properly, I can't see this being a problem.

So here are my new plans. I took some photos from another forum and put them on my plans too.

Mighty Tidy horrocks007!

Have you rolled it around yet to test the cart on that irregular surface?

Can't wait to see your first pizza.
