Just a quick Christmas present for my brother, whom I haven’t seen in 16 years.
His daughter is close by attending Texas A&M, (Gig’em Aggies).
He is going to drive with her back to Idaho for Christmas break, then send her back to school on a plane.
He is going to stop by sometime this afternoon, I hope.
Anyway, I started this Saturday when I found out but work got in the way so I finished up this pizza peel this morning.
Made of Cherry, Maple and Walnut, hand planed flat on the bottom and beveled toward the front on top.
Thickness is 1/4” at the front, that quickly tapers to about 1/8” and toward the back is 7/16” thick.
There are some gouge marks where my #7 needed honing.
Size is 16 1/6” deep and 16” wide. It was suppose to be 17” deep but some slippage during glue up halted that plan.
The handle is solid walnut 7/8” thick by 7/8” wide. It is inset into the two halves with a tongue and groove to add rigidity.
