In my estimation it would not be so different than using rectangular bricks but maybe a wee bit trickier
It shouldn't be. After beveling and tapering my dome bricks, it was a fairly quick process to lightly drag the face of each brick across the saw blade at an angle to create a shallow concave 'dish' shape (both vertically and horizontally).

I know that a large number of builders favor placing an untouched brick face towards the center of the oven to employ a 'best-fired' surface, but I was intent on eliminating the 'I' overbite that results from stacking straight-faced bricks placed in a round.

I would think that manipulating the face of a curved brick would take no more (straight) cuts than shaping a rectangular brick, but would simply be more expensive to start with.

Thumbs up Re: Curved fire bricks

G'day
160 bricks for the dome sounds like a goodly amount for that size dome even with some cutting.
I think that GianniFocaccia comments on curved bricks is spot on you should treat them no differently than strait ones really.
You really should read GianniFoccasias build as part of your preparations
Regards dave
