Made this pizza peel from red oak that I got from Lowes. The piece that I made the handle out of is significantly reder than the other piece but I think i like it. I glued the boards together with Gorilla brand wood glue. The finish is just mineral oil but I really like the way it turned out on the oak, its silky smooth feeling.

Simple and effective – a good way to start. Nice job.

Smart bit of design on that tapered edge. Should allow you to slide in under the dough while holding the peel at a comfortable angle.

I was making a homemade pizza and decided to make one of these out of some left over hard maple flooring strips. Nice useful item for those of us that like to cook also. p.s. much better than spending buku bucks at the local w&s.

Very nice.
My wife has been asking me to make her one for some time now.
Thanks for the encouragement.

Every time I see one of these nice peels, I think “I need to try this.” Then something else takes my attention! You did a good job. I like the contrast with the two woods also.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Have your say...
