That brick would be easy to build a 31" oven with, huh? Is there room for mortar between them?

Better yet can we specify a reasonable angle?

There are two sizes in the photo. The first is a No #2 Arch. It measures roughly 8-1/4 x 4 x 2-3/8 to 1-5/8. The second is a No #1 Arch that measures 8-1/4 x 4 x 3 to 2-5/8. The radius shown was achieved by alternating the two sizes. Using just the No #2 Arch approximately an 18-inch inside radius can be achieved.

In fireplace construction we recommend mortar joints of 1/8-inch for firebox construction. Using a similar joint in the arch shown would add a bit to the overall size, but I wouldn't think it would be significant.

There are a couple standard industry angles. One of them is likely close to something reasonable for pizza oven use. What's most advantageous?

Can you post your list prices for the bricks? It will give a perspective on "not terribly more expensive....thanks!

Freight is a huge factor in the price of low-duty firebrick, but I would expect the two arches to be in the neighborhood of $1.20/each in pallet quantities if sourced through a masonry supply dealer moving material in truckload quantities.

If they were to be mixed and matched on a pallet and drop shipped to a private residence the price could be as high as $5-7.50/each depending on location. The difference being freight, and convenience.
