This is a customer requested custom pizza peel with a carved letter.

The side strips are made out of Mahogany with the center strip being of Walnut. Both woods are considered hardwoods and will hold up well as long as proper cleaning and oiling care is used in maintaining them.

The paddle is 15 1/2 inches wide by 16 inches tall, with the overall length being 32 inches and was made out of 1/2 inch stock. A hole was drilled in the top end of the handle and a leather strip was tied in so the peel could be hung up.

The front edge has a 3 inch bevel to be able to work with the pizza.

After sanding smooth and preparing the wood We used a food grade mineral oil for the finish protective coat.

Very nice! Great job of engravign the letter. I would have thought that you would have put the letter on the handle so that it wouldn’t make cleaning the peel harder, but it really looks nice where it is.

I had to look at this one just to find out what a pizza peel was. Nice job, by the way!
