I wanted to test my skills in jointing and planing, so I decided to try a project that I found in one of my wood working mags.
I had gotten a large 12’ Red Oak beam from a contractor friend doing a remodel project. I cut it down to 4 3’ sections. From one of the sections I ripped 6 3/4” strips. After running them thru the jointer I laid them on their sides and glued them into a 3’ x 12” x 3/4 ” blank. I then ran the blank thru my planer and reduced the thickness to 1/2”. After tracing my desired shape, I cut it out at the scroll saw. After many hours of sanding and creating the “wedge” at the end of the pizza peel, I stained the handle part to add a little bit of contrasting. The whole piece was then coated with a butcher block conditioner.
We have pizza at least once a week and use this regularly.
