I believe every oven has some cracks somewhere, if someone says their oven has no cracks then they are either a Politician or a used car salesman, LOL.
Gulf and Greenman like this.

I hear ya Gulf. That's the beauty of not using mortar where you can see it. On the back side of the brick - I have no clue. I am surprised that I see nothing in the entry - I did interlace the bricks pretty good so apparently the unit is one. Just waiting for the earthquake that is due, then we will see
