This is a pizza cutter that I made for my lovely wife. It is made of Blackwood and is approximately 7” long and approximately 1” at the fattest point in the center. I sanded it to 2000 grit and applied 3 coats of tong oil. I them buffed and waxed it to its final finish.

Any comments or critiques are appreciated.

Neat idea! I might do one for my wife. Where do you get your blackwood? I have a hard time finding it.

That looks terrific. My wife has a pizza cutter that her mother gave her. I noticed that it is really wearing where the axle goes through. So my question for you is did you use a kit or take an existing one apart?

That’s a particularly nice piece of Blackwood. Whenever I see it on sale I buy some, saving it mostly for finials. I have also ebonized it by using black aniline dye. You get the look of ebony at nowhere near the expense.

Thanks all for the comments.

Todd I got the blackwood at exotic woods about a year ago, it has been in my shop awating the perfect project.

John I bought a kit at Craft Supplies, it was pretty easy to make.
