James, and everybody else,
Just wanted to say I had a blast! It was definitely worth the drive down from Oregon.
My riding companion fell ill, and requested we head back home, so unfortunately I wasn't able to come back on Sunday like I was planning.
Next year, however!

Great community of folks, for sure!

James is manufacturing his own line of ovens now (except for one). They are casted of refractory material and function very well. It's very impressive on how thin they are with minimal heat on the exterior. Not sure about the names - James?

Hey guys,

FB currently manufactures residential oven kits and assembled ovens. Each oven is made with a cast oven dome/vent, a firebrick tile floor, FB board floor insulation, FB blanket dome insulation, FB mortar, chimney, a metal door and thermometer. I think they are only thin relative to a site-built brick oven. Our ovens are very heavy and well insulated compared with other oven kits -- and they work great. We also have lots of interesting stuff in the works. :-)

Modular Oven Kits:

Giardino60 and 70 (24 and 28")
Casa2G80, 90, 100 and 110 (32 - 44")

Fully Assembled Ovens

Primavera60 and 70
Toscana80, 90, 100 and 110.

I hope this helps.
James

Hello everybody. My name is Henry and I’d like to say couple words about why I’m here….but first, I’d like to thank James and All who worked on the FornoBravo Expo2010 for the nicely organized event, great food and warm Welcome.

One of the things which I liked on the Expo was that James gave everybody attention while hosting the event and to me that was important. I was able to share some of my ideas about the oven I’m planning to build and lucky to have the advice from James.

I found this site couple month ago and it helped me to get some useful information about the brick porosity alumina content etc .I’m thinking about building Georgian bread oven called “Tone” .It is similar to Tondoori oven but has brick walls instead of traditional clay

At this point, I do not have practical knowledge or experience in building ovens but hope this forum continues to be the place where I can learn something new and share some of my ongoing progress..

I think, James, that maybe you're selling yourself and your excellent product short, buy using the word "cast", which is associated with refractory concrete domes (castable).
Maybe slip-cast is better, or maybe pre-formed, to get away from the word cast entirely.

Just an idea.
