Blade is Walnut 12 1/2” L X 10” W

LOL! Merry Christmas Tom! I wish I could make these much faster then I wouldn’t mind giving more of them away. They may look nice but take way to long to make.

You did some fine work Tony. I like the detail you put in the handle, really makes them stand out. I agree, the contrasting woods are awesome.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks Ed.... I like your idea “give them Pizza dough”. A gag like that could turn into a yummy pizza!

Thanks Joe.... Now that I got these peels behind me I’ve got to start thinking about next year!

Thanks Dave.... I though I would try a different shape handle and I wasn’t sure if I would even like it. I made the handle longer for a two handed hold; it came out better looking than I thought it would and very comfortable to hold also.

Thanks Bob... Yes I too love the contrasting woods. Most projects look better when you mix up the wood’s!
I didn’t think Select Pine was going to go with Cherry but it does look good! :)

Ken.... Thanks for the great report card! A++++++ Love it! I think those dowel pins help the overall look for more apeal! LOL!

Thanks Ivan... Even if you don’t use it the peel it would look good just hanging on the wall in the kitchen as a decoration.

MERRY CHRISTMAS To Everyone!

Thanks Randy... Hope I made enough! I’ve made so many now the wife is rolling her eyes!

Thanks Doug.... If it’s too big to put in drawer or cabinet then it better look good hanging on the wall. LOL!
Looking forward to your Confederate flag Doug!
