When renovating my basement I saved a mountain of tongue and groove pine from the landfill. While not the most prestigious wood in the world (I believe it was Ponderosa Pine) it has come in very useful for a myriad of projects.
As you can see I had lots of cutoffs that were destined for the fireplace, however one year I got the idea of building some pizza peels from them. I started using my BBQ to cook pizza and haven’t looked back since. These pizza peels are great because they look great, work flawlessly and don’t take much work to create.
I started by collecting all the interesting cuttoffs I had. Ceder, walnut, maple, etc and mixing them up with the pine.
I then made a template from some plywood in the style of pizza peel I wanted to create.
And then I ran all of the glued up peels through my planer.
Then I routed around the template with a glued up peel beneath it.. and voila!
