John (lwood) used fired red clay bricks for his oven and is working just fine for his huge oven. My take on the clay bricks is if its dense and stores heat well it will be a good substitute for fire bricks.

Yeah that's usually the case. Geez... is that AUD 3.96? That's quite expensive. The biggest expense I had for my oven project was definitely the fire bricks. I picked the firebricks cause I wanted the same performance as the oven in the pizzeria I worked in but the red clay bricks are just as good.

Just to be sure, search the threads here on red clay brick ovens. There are quite a few that I've read and they can help you determine if the clay brick you have has the right characteristics.

Good luck!

Hi all
updates to my build. Have had a very productive week.
First photo shows the stand arch completed. 2 nd photo shows the stand arch and soldier course of bricks that will also act as the form work for the hearth and insulation layer.
feed back welcome this allows for 3' of hearth and 2" insulation layer = 5 "
is this enough of each or should it be thicker.
third photo shows soldier course and reo for hearth slab.
4 th photo is the start of bench wall.
5 th photo is a close up of soldier course and reo.
Where opening is a 12" hearth will protude out from the arch way opening.

regards gary
