Default Re: Pompeii Oven floor from Forno Bravo

We use firebrick tiles in the Primavera oven. It's a nice material, it cooks great, you don't have too many seams, and they look really cool! We do cut them and fit the oven dome around the floor -- so it can be done. :-)

I found a supplier in the San Francisco Bay Area that has 24" X 36" X 3" firebrick tiles at $81 per. I am considering using them for my oven floor to minimize the number of seams. I'm not sure how I will be able to cut them to fit and set them up for diagonal seams. I like the look of them though.

Cutting big masonry slabs is a pain - they don't fit on the wet saw, and using the angle grinder to score and break is crude at best. You could take them down to the stoneyard and have them cut them to shape on their giant diamond saw, but that's not cheap.
