Forno Bravo Premio 2G110 Build
« on: August 24, 2011, 12:37:09 PM »
Finally.   After 8 months in storage, the build begins. I watched all the nice builds, changing my design every other week. My poker playing engineer friends have been redesigning it every month. This is going to be a green build using surplus and recycled materials. The base is going to be pavers that will be on their third project. The oven stand will be round on 12 casters, so it can spin in any direction. There will be pictures posted after the project makes enough progress to show what it is going to look like.
The finish will be stucco, i hope to make it look like a Dalek from Dr Who, If not a Dalek then R2D2..

Ed,

Sounds like a great build coming up. How could you stand it to have the oven in storage for 8 months???

I can't wait to see it progress.

It bugged me to trip over it ever time I went in my garage, but i have a bee hive propane powered oven in my back yard..It'll hit 900 degrees in about 40 minutes...I don't go wanting for good pizza..

A police call box would be cool  ;D

I'm a British-ex-pat so that's just me!  :-D

Would love to see the beehive oven though??

Darn it now you've gone and done it. A call box would be great and easy to do.
Design group coming this Saturday for monthly poker game..Think I'll put the call box idea up before we make the circles for a Dalek..
 My real boss [she who must be obeyed] calls the small oven a bee hive.. It is also called a igloo by some people.
Maybe it could be the Dalek.

Do you know what the radius is on the call box corners?   More I think about it ,the more I like it..A call box would be cool...
Thanks for making my volunteer helpers life more complicated..I love the call box idea.
Now to tell the boss when she asks whats up for today..

Thanks, the last one has all the info I need. Now I'll put my computer boys to work scaling it to fit around my oven.. This looks doable..
Of course this means a day or 2 delay, I have almost everything to build a box.The air vent on top can be used as a flue..

Mick,
It's not going as fast as i had hoped...,Darn engineers were driving me nuts with different ideas.. They are Dr Who fans.
In the process of preparing a pad,[she who must be obeyed] decided to strip rear yard to bare dirt, all plant life gone, just got new walks and pad done last Saturday...Hope to start platform for oven this weekend..I have a few pics but i need help putting them up, not a big problem as there are computer guys in and out almost every other day..
Its going to be a Tardis, the only issue is how we do the doors..I'll post pics of my bee hive oven along with pizza from the last party...I'm old, slow, but good at what i do...Good luck on doing your oven...Expect pics toward the end of this week..
Thanks Mick, its keeps life interesting doing different things...

Finally pics of build. Base for oven 8" deep compacted 3/4 AB rock.
Soil was too soft to put a lot of weight on. Pavers are reuse items from another project.

We built the frame out of heavy gauge steel studs..Used the top rails placed on their sides to form the oven platform.

Looking good PP.  Sorry for the dumb question, but how much weight will the steel stud frame hold?  Can you talk about the pluses of using this frame over a cinderblock frame?

Thanks,
Chau

My adobe soil wants to move under weight concentrated in one spot.   the steel system i used can be adapted to handle quite a bit of weight. The only thing is it needs to be engineered for the weight you
are going to put on them.
The steel is much lighter than block . plus we were able to built the fame, pour the concrete for the oven in one short day...Its faster, its not that expensive..
I have less than 100 dollars in the cost of steel plus much less labor.
It also allows the weight to be spread in a more uniform manner.
