Default Any thoughts on quality/performance of this oven

Would anyone care to share their thoughts on the expected performance, efficiency and lifespan of this oven? I can see that most of the bricks were not cut and thus there are large gaps filled with refractory mortar. How much weaker is the design and is it far more likely to collapse in?

Thumbs up Re: Any thoughts on quality/performance of this oven

No fancy cuts in my oven.... brick bolster and angle grinder. 2yrs now and it still cooks real good and definitely still standing. I have definitely got big admiration for the ovens with the fancy brick cuts .....but the forno can be built by the "masonry impared" like myself. Insulate that oven ,tart it up ,and cook in the knowledge that its a dome and simple gravity will keep it up.
