As the name implies this Pizza Peel was first seen by my No 2 Son Daniel on LJs, and he asked if I could make one similar but rounded. (See picture No 6 for Candys nice work)
So I contacted Candy before I started and she had no objections to using the concept of her original Charity post as an example.
I used some timber from Degoose’s stash… New Guniea Rosewood. Great timber to work with !!
It was jointed and thicknessed, then a reverse glue joint cut in the sections for the edge glue up.
Once the Glue was set I cut the 45 degee edge on the face with the Table saw before rounding it.
Used the bandsaw to cut the profile and an Osc sander to finish the edges.
I then used a roundover bit on the edge to finish the profile.
Sanded started at 80 grit and finished at 320 grit.
Its another item for inclusion for the trip to Sydney at Christmas, along with my other Sons 1500 mm Table top and base.
There is a blog covering the intial construction of the Pizza Peel plus an additional blog on my Home made Backline clamps if its of further interest..
Dimensions:- The width of the circle is 420mm with a handle of 200mm, the material is about 20mm thick.
The final finish will be Rice Bran Oil, of which we will prep and apply on delivery.
1. CFrye for the original post inspiring the work, and
2. Lazy Larry AKA Degoose for the supply of the fine Rosewood pieces.
