I had an idea about a year or two ago for a third furnace upgrade called a Kiln. It would be used to smelt things like netherack, clay, clay blocks, cobble, sand and etc. much faster. I feel as though it would add a lot to the game along with a new block to build with, while I do understand the stone mason already has a block to attach to I still feel as though the kiln would be an awesome addition to the base game. Also I would probably have the crafting recipe be something like a furnace in the middle with brick blocks on all sides.
Simple, useful, well within thematic of Minecraft - good suggestion. Full support.
...Well, maybe for that bricks on all sides part, I'd just change the bottom 3 blocks to stone bricks, rest 5 can be ceramic bricks as you intend to.
