I am having a go at making a pizza oven. I know very little about DIY and as such, this project is more about the experience (not the final result!).
I purchased some fire bricks but I did not expect each brick to weigh 9 kg!!
I've laid the bricks on the floor to get an idea of dimensions of the oven and to get the shape right! I've even created an wooden arch so I can 'mount' the bricks onto the arch, cement the bricks together, remove the wooden arch and hopefully will be left with a standing arch!
My concern is, will a heat resistant mortar like this be strong enough to keep this structure this way, or are 9kg bricks not meant to be built up this way? Each brick is 5cm high, 23cm wide and 19cm deep
