This peel is made using Select Pine and Walnut. I decided to make a few more peels just to have for gift giving.
I make my peels really thin and light weight and I wasn’t sure if pine would hold up a heavy pizza so I did a test after making this pine peel. I used a 4 pound bag of sugar on the peel to see how much it would flex. Well as you can see in the photo it didn’t flex at all. The peel is only 1/4” thick and is very strong. The Walnut handle halves are glued on using Titebond III forming a 1 1/4” X 7/8’ handle.
The finish is Food grade Mineral Oil and Bees Wax.
Thanks for looking in! All comments welcome!
