If its only clay it will be right, the problems start if you use a a setting compound.

Had a look on e-bay the other day and saw this wood for sale and put in a bid - picked it up for $10.50 - pick it up next week - Might give my two teenage boys something to do to break it down - if you can ever get them off the computer

Help guys I'm a bit unsure on this I'm about to hook the soldier course in with the base of the inner arch and have a question. Should I mortor down the bottom brick (underside) of the arch onto the floor bricks or should this float as well ???

Gudday
Let if float .....on that point , take the time to jam some some cardboard in the juction between the hearth floor and soldier course. You don't want dribs of mortar packing down in their during construction you'll want you hearth to be able expand and contract independent to that soldier course.

hey camo, great build so far,

one question, how did you get the oven floor bricks so well rounded in their cut. did you use a band saw?

cheers

Cheers Brendan, bit of an optical illusion I think. I don't think it would be possible to use a band saw as these fire bricks are big and heavy. I'm using a cheap saw I picked up at Bunnings for $50, last one, no box etc I think they were going for $100 anyway most of the cuts are straight only on the long ones along the brick was I able to make two or three cuts and round it up a bit. But yes I was happy how it turned out.
