I started these peels about 5 weeks ago but I hurt my back overloading my Lawn Spreader and pushing through our thick lawn. So now I’m good and back in the shop having fun!
These peels are made of Maple, Cherry and Walnut With an added leather loop for hanging. Finished with Beeswax and mineral spirits.
All comments good or bad welcome!
Thanks for looking!

That is a super nice design on those peels and makes me want to make some just like it .
Love wood combination and the leather loop is the perfect way to hang it and that brand will make it one to remember .
Would love to know your pizza dough recipe .

I’ve made a Pizza Peel or two (3 actually) and those sir are top drawer. Love the color contrasts, the wave of the handle, and generally I don’t see a darn thing I don’t like about them. You should be proud of those babies while they are still in your care, because we all know that one day they’ll just peel out and go live with someone else. Then you’ll have to visit and fuss about them keeping them waxed and nurtured.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jeff ..
I think I’m done making peels for a while…time to move on to something else!

Thanks Klaus....
I would love to see what you come up with if you decide to make a Peel. I know you’ll add something unique… I’m sure!
As far as a pizza receipt I just find a recipe on line and go from there or we’ll heat up the oven to 425° and then and head on over to Papa Murphy's and watch them build our pizza then head on home to cook it. LOVE AT 425°

Thanks Joe...
I took me a few tries to get the look I wanted! They sure do look good I must say! And every time I hurt my back I learn something new that I should not to do! Think I would have learned by now! LOL!

Thanks Scott...
I do find it hard to part with things I make if they turn out nice. But I can’t keep all these peels so I’ll let my son put them in his friends consignment shop for sale. I’ll make some care instructions for each one.
Thank you for your nice comments!

Thank you Pottz...
I’m going to put some in a consignment shop soon. It’s a nice shop that sells all kinds of home decor. I’m letting my son handle that part. Problem is he lives 400 miles from us so I’ll see him on our next visit up there. No hurry….May be Christmas will be a good time to sell them.

Thanks Jim...
All this talk about pizza is making me hungry!

No respectable woodworker would share the crust- but what about the sauce!
Nice project!

Excellent job Tony. You peel those peelers of the presses with ease. My wife made pizza a couple weeks ago and the kids (grown adults) were fighting to use the peeler. Haha. Everybody likes your branding on them too.
If your lawn is that thick, quit fertilizing it. Lol.

Thanks Dave...
Glad to hear my peel was a hit with the “big” kiddos”! Anyone with St Augustine turf knows it’s very thick and heard to push anything through it. No more full hoppers of fertilizer for me; little at a time for this old man! LOL!

Thanks Dale...
Woods looks their best when they contrast each other for sure!

One of the next things on my list is replacements for my cracking old peels. I make a lot of from scratch pizza. These are maybe the coolest, nicest peels I’ve seen. Keeping this in mind as reference for sure. Really excellent.

Side note: Where do you guys get the branding stamps? I need something soon if I am going to start building respectable stuff for people.
