My understanding is that clay bricks are safe. The trouble comes from bricks made from cement. Those are very popular now and are the ones found at places like Home Depot. You can buy clay bricks from a mason supply or you can get them used.
What about doing this same design with all firebrick? Better?

All firebrick would be great.  They are very sharply cut so everything would fit together much tighter.  The only downside is the cost.  Where I bought them, they were $1.50 each.  All the additional clay brick I bought for about 15 cents each.  I used the fire brick for the floor because I wanted that tight fit for sliding the pizzas in.  But, sure, firebrick would make a really great oven.  Please send me pics if you do it.  Dan

Good looking pies out of dry stacked brick oven :pizza: Is that tower on the left really a chimney :-D ?

I have +100 pieces of firebricks laying around, your version of brick oven would be easy to try. Do you guys know many other dry or almost dry stacked
brick oven plans ?

Why is there a lot of black soot on the front of your opening already ridr? Because of the mortar less design?

Tower chimney i assume ;D Offcourse it wont work like proper one, but have you tested without chimney ? Does it work better with
rough chimney like that one ?

From what I have seen most wfo's end up with black around the opening.  And while I'm sure that since the oven is less than air tight, with no mortor, the chimney does not work as efficiently as a regular one.  However I find that my rough chimney draws the fire that I have pushed to the right sided, straight across the roof to the left side and up the chimney.  I have zero complaints as to how this oven is working.  It is truly amazing and simple.  enjoy...dan

Yes, I noticed it's pulling the fire across top very well indeed.  :chef:
