Gentlemen,

If I wanted to make a small brazing hearth what type of brick should I use.

Firebricks, but not the sort you get out of old storage heaters as they absorb rather than reflect the heat. To be honest, it's probably easiest just to get the pukka stuff from CuP Alloys or similar suppliers.

Also had just started on something similar myself.
