3" would be good, with a couple layers of reinforcement. Looking forward to pics.

Do you guys use mortar / thinset to "set" your firebricks on the base, or just let them "float" and let the weight of the oven keep them in place?? I was thinking I could just let them "float"

Dry-set, on sand or fireclay/sand mix.

Despite the fact that today was my 17 year wedding anniversary, I got a lot of work done!

Did a little more work today, then it rained.

Built a small fire in it to heat the oven up a touch to help it dry as the weather is cold and wet.

Added a few more bricks, and more refractory to the top of the barrel.
