Well everyone thanks again for all the help. iam still alittle confused, i like the idea of putting the bricks on top of the floor if that helps spread the weight. but does this mean i cant put them right on the fb board? and when you put the first course of bricks on top of the floor you dont put mortar between the floor and them is this correct thanks again for all the help.

Both ways work. Use which ever method you like best.

Correct. You will get a little mortar there from mortaring between them, but you don't need to put a layer of mortar down under your first course.

@Pisani

Yes that does increase the heating times. I also have 7 inches in the dome.

I tend to start with a slow and easy fire then build it up over time. I plan on 4 to 5 hours to heat the oven. My big thing is bread so multiple full loads is not uncommon.

I am thinking it would be nice to build a quick heating pizza oven.

The board will support the weight which ever avenue you take. I posted a pic sometime ago where I drove my truck onto the product. Have no worries.

As far as grinding it's easiest done using an angle grinder with the appropriate disc. It's a very versatile tool to have. You'll use it throughout your oven build.
