I couldn’t view the drawing. The resolution was too low to make out the writing. Any chance you could attach a higher resolution image of it? Beautiful instructable.

...”treating pizza oven fire bricks with water glass would improve their thermal profile”...Short answer, no.Water glass is used in many refractory builds as an adhesive but isn’t a good insulator by itself. It is used with vermiculite or other minerals as a binder when making refractory panels. You would probably degrade your pizza oven fire bricks (working temperature of about 2400-2500 F) by coating them with water glass and the surface would probably start flaking off with successive firings.I’d love to see an instructable on how to make waterglass. Real useful stuff!!
The author would know best, but these look like fireplace bricks. Those are the bricks that you use to line your fireplace. The really expensive bricks are kiln bricks. In this application fireplace bricks would be more abrasion resistant. I don’t know the maximum temperature they will withstand but it should be within reach of the propane weed burner setup. Will the author use this to forge knifes?
