Great job, a project that I have wanted to do for a long time. Nice ballance, is the center piece oak? Or just heartwood?

What are the dimensions? and do you think you’ll put a finish on it….nice looking piece….I have a friend with wood fired pizza oven in his back yard and I’d like to make him one as a gift…..he makes a great pizza….

The center piece was a different color so I used it for accent. I won’t put a finish on it for fear of it getting into the crust of the pizza. I suppose you could use a walnut oil type finish but it would probably not last long. I used to work in the pizza industry and the peels we used did not come finished but did develop a nice patina after a while. This peel is approx 15” across and 22” long. Thanks for commenting.

Not sure how to post a second picture since I am new to this site. What I did for the taper was this: I took a pencil and marked the middle of the edge of the peel then I made a mark on both sides 2” parallel from the edge towards the handle. I then used a belt sander to shape the front edge of the peel until the taper met the pencil mark on the middle of the front edge. I then used a palm sander to touch it up. Hope this helps.
